Research Seed Funding awards are competitively awarded and help faculty more successfully advance competitive research proposals by supporting the generation of preliminary data, pursuing new directions or collaborations in research, and other endeavors. Investigators may propose projects in one of two categories. Category 1 - projects of any type with budgets up to $50,000 for one year; Category 2 - projects supporting a new collaboration between two or more disciplines with budgets up to $100,000 for one year.
The Richard B. Salomon Faculty Research Awards are competitively awarded and support excellence in scholarly work by providing funding for selected faculty research projects deemed to be of exceptional merit. Investigators may propose projects with budgets up to $15,000.
Grant Resubmission Awards provide support for investigators to improve an already highly-rated proposal for re-submission. The awards will be for up to $15,000. Applications accepted on a rolling basis.
Research Achievement Awards recognize outstanding research achievements of Brown faculty through seven awards given annually that each carry a research stipend of $5,000.
Humanities Research Funds help support faculty research in departments and fields in the arts, humanities and social sciences with limited external funding opportunities. Faculty apply directly to their chairs for support; full-time faculty may request up to $1,800.
Cost-Sharing Funds are available to help meet sponsor requirements and to increase competitiveness on certain external funding opportunities. For questions regarding OVPR cost-sharing, or to request cost sharing funds, please email Carleen Brunelli at email@example.com, Associate Vice President for Research. Please include the opportunity requirements, details of your request, including the total cost sharing required, and your plan for meeting that requirement.
