OVPR Program for Partial Salary Funding of Full-Time Specialized Research Faculty
The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) will provide funding to cover 5% of current salary plus the applicable fringe benefits for certain full-time specialized research faculty supported exclusively by external contract or grant funds to provide non-sponsor funded time for their participation in proposal development and writing.
To be eligible for funding, faculty must meet BOTH of the following criteria:
- Other than funds received from this program, 100% of salary will be funded by external contract and grant funds;
- Must be actively engaged in proposal writing as a PI or coPI;
Eligibility for this program will be reviewed and confirmed by the OVPR. This program will only provide funding for activities related to applying for external funding. Funding for other activities should be sought from departmental or other sources. Salary charged to sponsored projects should be for activities directly benefiting the award only.
Applications will be accepted from April to May of each year. Approved applications are valid for 3 years, contingent upon an annual review that the approved individuals continue to meet the eligibility requirements of the program. (No action is required by the recipient for this review.) Salary support is provided on an annual basis in July of each year. The annual allocation will be calculated based on the faculty member's salary in July of each year. No additional funds will be provided during the year for salary and/or fringe adjustments. All awards approved under this program will be made at the discretion of the OVPR.
To apply, complete the Salary Support for Full-Time Specialized Research Faculty application form and submit it to the OVPR via Kerry Peluso (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration.
