SCORE Initiative – Sustaining Collaborative Opportunities for Research and Education
This inter-institute effort is to recognize, support and build interdisciplinary research and education at Appalachian. This initiative will provide support for research, creative and scholarly endeavors, as well as community outreach and programs between RIEEE and IHHS which include programs focused on environment, energy, and economics as well as holistic well-being with the overarching goal of improving lives.
Partners in this effort are: Research Institute for Environment, Energy and Economics (RIEEE), Blue Cross NC Institute for Health and Human Services (BCNC IHHS), and The Office of Research.
SCORE Grant Program
Purpose: Funding will support interdisciplinary Communities of Practice to develop projects that involve research themes supported both in the College of Health Sciences and the RIEEE. Communities of Practice may be composed of faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, EHRA administrative staff, and others such as research professors and external collaborators. We encourage investigators who receive SCORE funding to submit external proposals through the IHHS, RIEEE, or the related centers, when appropriate.
The next cycle will be announced in late Spring 2018. When the next cycle is open, you can access the grant application here.
