The CALS Faculty Big Ideas Grant Program is funded through the Dean's "Open Fields Initiative." Open Fields is a new leadership fund supported by external private donors who share CALS mission and vision and want to help find science-based solutions to the grand challenges facing society in agriculture and biosciences. The funds are not state, federal, or generated by sponsored research. They are being provided to the College for solely the purpose of promoting important forward thinking, fauculty-drivenm "think and do" initiatives such as the CALS Faculty Big Ideas Innovation Program.

The goal of the CALS Faculty Big Ideas Innovation Program is to establish a grassroots, faculty-driven process to provide CALS faculty the resources necessary to bring innovative, interdisciplinary, big ideas to fruition. Our College envisions the development of bold, interdisciplinary programs that show potential to significantly impact multiple strategic priorities of the College and solve grand challenges that impact us locally, nationally, and globally. The purpose of Big Ideas is two-fold: (1) to function as an umbrella that will catalyze collaboration and partnership within CALS, across the University, and beyond; and (2) to provide structure and finding.

The program is divided into four seperate funding phases ranging from small awards of $500 to facilitate brain storming on a proposed Big Idea, to larger, recurring awards of up to $100,000 that provide seed funding and potentially permanent institutional support for most innovative and promising Big Ideas.

All CALS faculty are eligible for funding. In addition to CALS PI, team must include a minimum: two other CALS departments; 1 non-CALS NCSU college; or external partners/stakeholders.

Proposals should be submitted by email to with the subject heading: Big Ideas Imagination Fund- (PI last name).

Proposal Content and Submission Instructions:

Big Ideas Imagination Fund proposals should not exceed one page and should:

1. Identify the issue that the Big Idea will address;

2. Demonstrate how the Big Idea will impact two or more of the five strategic priorities of the college;

3. Identify the interdisciplinary team/experts expected to be involved in the Big Idea conservation; and

4. Explain what activities the $500 investment will support to bring people together for the "Big Idea Imagination" conversation.

Reporting Requirements: Within four months (120 days) from date of the award, PIs must submit a one page summary of the outcomes of the $500 investment, what activities were conducted, the results of those activities, participants, and if/how the team plans to continue developing the Big Idea to the next step. If the decision is to not pursue the idea, the final report should provide the same information minus next steps, but including the basis for the "no-go" decision. Should the team decide to apply for funding through the next step, (Phase II) "Big Idea Proof of Concept Fund," this one page report will serve as the cover page for that proposal.
