Faculty: Get Involved with Bass Connections

Submit a Proposal for a 2018-2019 Project Team by November 3

Bass Connections supports team-based research projects that engage faculty, undergraduates, and graduate/professional students in interdisciplinary exploration of big, unanswered questions about major societal challenges. Any faculty member may submit a proposal for a 2018-2019 project team by November 3, 2017. Graduate students, postdocs, and trainees/fellows may also propose projects, but all projects must have at least one faculty leader.

New Opportunity: Bass Connections Open

Faculty may propose a project that meets the three core connections of Bass Connections – but does not align with one of the five existing themes – by applying through the new open channel.
