Each year, the Global Change Center (GCC) at Virginia Tech accepts proposals from GCC faculty to support interdisciplinary research that will lead to collaborative proposals submitted to extramural funding sources. We seek projects that link multiple faculty programs and take advantage of unique combinations of expertise at VT, have societal implications and/or a policy component, deal with emerging global change issues that have regional significance, and have high potential to eventually leverage external resources.

This year’s faculty grants were award in December. Click here for a full listing of funded proposals.

The GCC also accepts proposals from graduate students to support interdisciplinary research and research-related travel. Proposals addressing both basic and applied aspects of global change science are considered, and priority is given to funding proposals that advance the collaborative and interdisciplinary mission of the GCC.
