DUE FEBRUARY 15, 2023 at 5pm MT
Submitting a Project Pitch is the first step in the process of applying for Resource Nexus for Sustainability (RNS) funding. The Pitch is a way to gather ideas for research projects from the campus and broader community. The RNS team will then help match Boise State researchers and community partners into teams that will submit full proposals.
Eligible applicants include:
- Boise State University researchers already working with or interested in working with community partners to address resilience or sustainability-based problems in Idaho communities.
- Idaho community partners already working with or interested in working with Boise State researchers or research groups to address resilience or sustainability-based problems in their communities.
PITCH SUBMISSION PROCESS
Applicants will submit a concise Project Pitch presenting the problem to be addressed. The Pitch can be a video, an audio file, a written abstract, or another delivery mechanism that clearly and succinctly conveys the problem to be addressed, its relationship to sustainability and resiliency, and how addressing it will increase research capacity at Boise State while also addressing issues of resiliency and sustainability in Idaho.
Submissions should not exceed the equivalent of 500 words or a 3-minute audio/video file.
SUBMIT YOUR PITCH by FEBRUARY 15, 2023 at 5pm MT
PITCH REVIEW PROCESS
The RNS Team will evaluate Project Pitches and invite a select group to submit a Full Request for Funding. Project Pitches will be judged on the project’s relationship to sustainability and resiliency, and how carrying it out will increase research capacity at Boise State while also addressing issues of resiliency and sustainability in Idaho.
Those selected will be notified by February 28, 2023.
The RNS Team will provide proposal development support to selected teams including: assistance connecting Community Partners and Boise State faculty, staff, and students; relationship building across disciplines and sectors; facilitating initial team meetings; and assisting project teams with aligning the scope of the proposed project with available resources.
