The Team Science grant, developed by the Division of Research and Innovation (DRI) working with the President’s Research Council (PRC) and the DRI Research Advisory Committee (RAC), will provide developmental support for a project or program that will result in a competitive and fundable grant application to an external funding agency that provides significant direct and indirect funding. The proposal will be evaluated based on the merit of the scientific idea and the strength and synergy of the proposed team. Awards are for a two-year, non-renewable period.

This program has the HSC values of Collaboration and Be Visionary as its underpinnings, with two opportunity pathways:
- Collaboration among team members to develop a project requiring interdisciplinary skills and approaches that are essential to exploring and/or developing a novel approach and solution to an existing problem within a defined area of strategic research interest to HSC. Projects within this pathway would involve investigators with different types of expertise addressing the same problem from different scientific perspectives.
- Multi-project/Multi-Investigator Pathway: Multi-project grant applications share the following features: at least two interrelated research projects, connected to a theme with each capable of standing on its own scientific merit but complementing one another; collaboration and interaction among projects and investigators to achieve a common goal with synergy among projects. These are the so-called P and U category awards (as defined by NIH).
Since this Team Science initiative is designed as a semi-annual program, there is no limit on the number of applications that can be submitted for consideration.
