The Signature Centers Initiative (SCI) was begun in 2006 in an effort to create strong research units, which are uniquely identifiable with IUPUI and will lead the way in world-class research and creative activities that will substantiallyenhance the reputation of our campus. I am happy to announce the 6th round of submission for SCI proposals. Application guidelines are attached to this message. Deadline for application is April 1, 2013. Please share this announcement with faculty in your school.
Moreover, our office will offer a workshop on January 11, 2013, for those interested in applying for SCI funding. Registration for the workshop is strongly encouraged. A description of the workshop and the link to the registration site are provided below.

This workshop is intended for those interested in submitting high quality center proposals to the Signature Centers Initiative program.
