CUSE Grants Program

The purpose of CUSE (Collaboration for Unprecedented Success and Excellence) Grant Program is to enhance interdisciplinary collaborations, to grow the research enterprise and enhance scholarship at Syracuse University in order to increase extramural funding and high-quality scholarly output. The program is designed to support faculty in becoming competitive in securing external funding and sponsorship. CUSE Grants should not be viewed as funds to conduct or complete projects, but rather as seed funding for faculty to build interdisciplinary teams, to produce preliminary data, and/or to seek help to obtain extramural funding that will advance knowledge and technologies through basic, translational, and applied research. The grant program will support faculty research in all disciplines that span across basic, translational and applied sciences, social sciences, physical and life sciences, engineering, liberal arts, humanities, professional schools, creative research, and various forms of all scholarly activities. The expectation is for CUSE Grant Program-funded faculty members to seek extramural support that will increase the national and international recognition of the awardees, their programs, and the university.

A list of funded CUSE grants can now be accessed on (NetID and password required). The list is organized by funding mechanism (seed grants, interdisciplinary seminar grants, good to great grants, innovative and interdisciplinary research grants). Included are project titles and Primary Investigator and Co-Investigator names and institutional affiliations.
