University Research Awards
Originally called Provost’s Multidisciplinary Awards, the University Research Awards are funded $250,000 every year by the president and as match by the schools for a total of $500,000 annually.
Applications are sought from faculty across the University, and funding is awarded to recipients who demonstrate their projects favor new research with a high probability of being leveraged by future external funding.
A review committee of faculty from across UR was established to provide peer review of the applications. It has rotating membership.
