Office of Research - Strategic Directions for Research Award
The Strategic Directions for Research Award (SDRA) Program supports innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative research that involves faculty groups from multiple USC schools. The goal of this competitive funding opportunity is to identify undeveloped areas of USC interdisciplinary strengths that present opportunities for cross-school collaboration and sustainable future external funding.
We invite applications from faculty teams across USC. Applying teams must show their qualifications, creativity, and ability to make USC a leader in a significant area of study, and the sustainability of the proposed research with external funding. SDRA provides up to $200,000; smaller budgets are welcome.
