*New* UW Royalty Research Fund Grants [Due March 1, 2021]
Posted: 2/14/2021 (Funding)
Applications are open for the Spring 2021 round of the UW Royalty Research Fund (RRF) grant program. Proposals are due Monday, March 1, by 5:00 PM. This program aims to support new directions in research, particularly in disciplines for which external funding opportunities are minimal, for faculty who are junior in rank, or in cases where funding may provide unique opportunities to increase applicants’ competitiveness for subsequent funding. Proposals from all disciplines are welcome, with budgets up to $40,000. Application instructions can be found at the Office of Research website. Acting Faculty and faculty with temporary appointments may be paid for up to 2 months on RRF grants even though they are not eligible to be PI or Co-I. Please see the updated instructions here. Contact the RRF administrative staff with questions about the program; new applicants should contact Peter Wilsnack, firstname.lastname@example.org, 206-685-9316.
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. Proposals will be peer reviewed through one of three RRF Review Committees: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Basic Biological and Biomedical Sciences; and Physical Sciences and Engineering.
