Research Enhancement Program Grants

The Research Enhancement Program (REP) provides short-term, one-time grants for the support of research and professional creative activity. Grants serve as seed funding for launching new research and serves as a foundation for future research and funding.

REP Instructions

grants to sponsor interdisciplinary research

The request for proposals (RFP) outlines the policies of the program. The IRP provides one-year grants to sponsor interdisciplinary research and professional creative activities. The maximum allowable budget for any one successful proposal is $20,000. IRP proposals must be submitted on or before March 25, 2019 according to the instructions in this RFP and funds will be made available to each winning team on September 1, 2019. All proposals must be submitted through the IRP Sharepoint site.

IRP Sharepoint site.

Successful IRP grant submissions must:

  • Describe the proposed effort, a rough timeline and deliverables, and how the proposed effort advances the research topic.
  • Describe the roles of each proposal team member how this team (including 2 or more tenured or tenure-track faculty as lead investigators) will use this project to establish a valuable research collaboration that would not have occurred without this program.
  • Clearly identify the follow-on extramural funding opportunities for this interdisciplinary work and provide a credible plan for pursuing those opportunities. A requirement of IRP award recipients is submission of at least one interdisciplinary research proposal to an extramural funding source within one year after the end of the award period.

Proposal reviews will be based on how well each of these criteria is addressed.
