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.

The RFP describes the process, and the fill-in application can be downloaded here:

Applications are due February 3, 2014
