About the PhD CoLab Pilot Program

Awards range from $30,000 to $100,000 and total nearly $340,000 during this pilot year. The primary objectives of this pilot program are to provide new opportunities for PhD students to build competencies and networks in collaborative, inter/transdisciplinary scholarly work, and to advance collaboration as a desired research and learning mode across disciplines to enrich scholarship. Participating PhD students will be able to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries from the inception of projects through data collection to writing of theses and resulting publications. Collaborative outputs will form a component of each student’s dissertations.
