K-State announces Game-changing Research Initiation Program

Submitted by Office of the Vice President for Research

The Office of the Vice President for Research, in partnership with the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost and the KSU Foundation, is launching a new Game-changing Research Initiation Program, or GRIP, which will invest $3 million in transdisciplinary research at Kansas State University. Specifically, GRIP seeks to bring teams of faculty together to work on some of the most challenging and complex issues we face today, drawing on expertise from multiple colleges, campuses, departments, and labs at K-State.

All K-State faculty are invited to attend one of three GRIP Q&A sessions in the coming weeks, hosted by David Rosowsky, vice president for research, and Beth Montelone, senior associate vice president for research and director of the Office of Research Development:

  • 4-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, at Joyce and Joe's Cornerstone Café, first floor of Hale Library.
  • 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Oct. 26, virtually via Zoom.

These informal sessions are opportunities for interested faculty to ask questions, share ideas, meet other faculty and learn more about GRIP.
