As part of our engagement with McAllister & Quinn outlined in an email sent yesterday, we are soliciting from you concept papers aligned with UH’s Research Thrusts to identify and execute on strategic projects. Concept papers will be our major mechanism to select the eight grant proposals we will be working on with McAllister & Quinn for extramural funding over the next two years.

The concept papers will be reviewed and scored by McAllister & Quinn based on their competitiveness for existing federal funding and alignment with our Research Thrusts. Please review the guidelines for submission that McAllister & Quinn are asking you to follow, including the 2-page limit. We encourage submissions of groups of faculty who collaborate (or are planning to collaborate) on research projects.

Submit your concept paper to as a pdf no later than Friday, December 7 at 5 p.m., using as a file name LAST_FIRST_COLLEGE (LAST=your last name; FIRST=your first name; COLLEGE=your home college).

If you have any questions, contact Claudia Neuhauser at
