Applicants can receive only one University Researcher or New Researcher award in any given fiscal year. Maximum of one award every two years per principal investigator.

AWARD SELECTION

Office of Research and Sponsored Programs grant directors will review proposals and make funding recommendations to the Associate Provost for Research and Dean of Graduate Studies who will make the final funding decisions.

Proposals will be reviewed using the criteria outlined on the New Researcher Evaluation Form at the end of the application. In addition, please note the following:

  • Given proposals of comparable ratings, greater consideration will be awarded to those applicants who have not received funding or disseminated their work recently.
  • New Researcher funds cannot be used to reduce the applicant’s workload.
