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 provides peer review of the applications.
The RFP describes the process, and the fill-in application can be downloaded here:
Applications are due the first Monday of February. Decisions are announced just before Commencement.
Contact Adele Coelho, Faculty Outreach Coordinator, Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Research, with questions. Completed applications should be e-mailed directly to her as well.
