A key goal of the institutional strategic plan for research, endorsed by our Board of Trustees and executive leadership, is to expand the number of faculty and healthcare professionals involved in extramurally funded research. One mechanism for achieving that objective is to offer incentives for faculty to collaborate with international SDA partners in the design of innovative, interdisciplinary research.
The Grants for Research and School Partnerships International (GRASP-Intl) program has been created to allow LLU faculty to partner with professionals who have post-baccalaureate degrees and are employed by international SDA hospitals, medical centers, colleges or universities. The purpose of this funding mechanism is to create and foster collaborations by providing financial support for pairs of investigators to cooperate in pioneering research projects. The GRASP-Intl awards will nurture collaborative partnerships and equip researchers to successfully compete for major grants from external sponsors.
More information and the Request for Applications can be found on the main GRASP page.
