Internal Funding Opportunity

Serving on a peer review panel and communicating with program officers before or early in the proposal development process are fantastic ways for faculty members to enhance the competitiveness of their own grants and build professional relationships. Our new Peer Review Incentive Program will offer funding to interested faculty members in order to encourage them to participate in these activities. Click here for more information.

We manage awards and contracts alongside university faculty and staff to ensure proper administration of awards.
