University Provost’s Intramural Grant Program
Intramural Grant Program Summary
The University Provost (UP) Intramural Grant Program is an annual competition for tenured and tenure-track faculty that seeks to advance the University’s core principles through the development of ongoing, new, and cross-disciplinary initiatives that contribute to professional growth, collaborative models and educational excellence. Each year, in December, the UP publishes an annual funding announcement offering intramural support under two programs, namely, Seed and Collaborative Grant Programs with the intent of cultivating faculty research with potential for competitively securing extramural support.
UP Intramural grant recipients are asked to advance their research independence beyond the intramural grant support by planning and preparing a full-scale extramural proposal to a nationally-recognized sponsor; work with an external mentor specific to the Seed mechanism; subsequently evaluate the sponsor’s critique and, if not initially funded, prepare a revised application for the next available submission cycle. Successful applicants will be funded over a 12-month period (July – June), but should anticipate that the process for seeking extramural funding will extend beyond the funded project period.
UP Intramural Grant Application
We ask for your patience as a new portal for the submission and life-cycle management of the University Provost Intramural Program is under development.
Please note that the UP Intramural Program announcement will be disseminated in early December with a deadline of February 15th.
