Award funds will be transferred to a chartstring managed by the PI’s unit. Funds may be used during the summer or the academic year, but must be expended within one fiscal year.

A review committee of faculty and staff will evaluate applications based on three criteria:

  1. Degree to which the proposal addresses the purpose of the program.
  2. Level of impact the proposed activities will have on the applicant’s research agenda and career.
  3. Adherence to proposal requirements.
