What the heck is the Royalty Research Fund (RRF)?
You’ve seen the announcements of RRF funding opportunities (next deadline is September 26th), and perhaps you have visions of the Queen of England. Nope! The “Royalty” in RRF is the royalty and licensing fee income generated by the University’s technology transfer program. These funds are awarded as small grants to advance new directions in research, particularly:
- In disciplines for which external funding opportunities are minimal, and/or
- For faculty who are junior in rank, and/or
- In cases where funding may provide unique opportunities to increase applicants’ competitiveness for subsequent funding.
It is competitive process, and proposals must demonstrate a high probability of generating important new creative activities or scholarly understandings, new scholarly materials or resources, significant data or information, or essential instrumentation resources that are likely to significantly advance the reputation of the university, lead to external funding, or lead to the development of a new technology.
If you are interested in applying for an RRF award through CSDE, please complete a Planning Proposal Submission Form.

Upcoming UW Provost Bridge Funding Application Deadline: November 1, 2022
The Provost's Office provides bridge funding to support faculty to span a gap in critical research programs.
- Faculty with a track record of extramural funding who have lost all of their research support at the time of the Bridge application, or who will lose all of their research support within six months of the Bridge application deadline.
- Junior faculty with a record of productivity who have exhausted their startup funds, but who have not yet obtained their first research funding (including an RRF award) either as a PI or as a co-investigator.
- A facility providing a key resource to multiple faculty that has lost extramural support. One faculty member should submit the proposal on behalf of the team.
- Awards are a maximum of $50,000 for one year from the Provost, and a 1:1 matching commitment is required from the department.
- Please see the Bridge Funding webpage for complete eligibility requirements, directions for the application and submission process, budget information, the notification of award, and the post-award process.
At the time funding is established or re-established, unspent funds will be returned to the Bridge program so that others can benefit. These programs are not intended to initiate new research projects. For those needs, researchers should apply to the Royalty Research Fund.

The International Organization for Migration is looking for a (home-based) consultant to produce the '6th knowledge bite.'’
The EU-IOM Knowledge Management Hub (KMH) launched in 2020 the Sustainable Reintegration Knowledge Bites series, which aims to present findings pertaining to sustainable reintegration outcomes emerging from the analyses of Reintegration Sustainability Survey (RSS) data and other monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data available.

In an ongoing effort to expand the knowledge on reintegration outcomes and the factors contributing to sustainable reintegration, the sixth Knowledge Bite will use data collected through the Returnee Longitudinal Survey (RLS) in four countries of return, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iraq and Pakistan, over the course of three years. The RLS was developed under the EU funded project “Displacement Tracking Matrix Regional Evidence for Migration Analysis and Policy (DTM REMAP)”.
- Duration of Consultancy: 45 working days, 19 September - 2 December 2022
- Nature of the consultancy: Category B - To produce the sixth Knowledge Bite, based on the in-depth quantitative analysis of the Returnee Longitudinal Survey (RLS) data.
