PTC supports interdisciplinary research on borders and transborder communities through seed grants, strategic research projects, and binational research partnerships.
The PTC seed grant mechanism was launched in 2014 under two modalities: research clusters and individual research grants. Research clusters are year-long group projects that bring together ASU faculty and external collaborators in order to pursue a body of focused research. The objective is to provide resources to launch a research effort that will result in a fully developed project proposal able to compete successfully for external funding. The cluster is led by an ASU faculty working collaboratively with other faculty and graduate students, and also with guest faculty member (PTC Scholar) based pm another university and who would serve as a consultant assisting in the development of a competitive project proposal. Individual research grants, on the other hand, provide ASU faculty academic year-long support to complete ongoing research or explore and develop new research ideas.
Both research clusters and individual seed grant proposals should directly contribute to the understanding of transborder communities and bordering processes in the US-Mexico borderlands and other border regions. The main deliverable is a grant proposal submitted for consideration to an external funding entity within twelve months of receiving the award.
