The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce the availability of research funds for the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

Seed Funds
Research Seed Funds are intended to support activities necessary to advance competitive research proposals, such as performing preliminary work and facilitating collaboration.

Salomon Funds 2019-2020
Designed to recognize excellence in scholarship, the Richard B. Salomon Faculty Research Awards fund exceptional faculty research projects.

Grant Resubmission Award
This award provides support for investigators to improve an already highly-rated proposal for re-submission. This is a pilot project, subject to demand and measured impact of the investments. Follow the link above for reference.  


*UPDATED*: Follow the links below to view the 2020 Limited Submission Calendars. In Fall 2018, OVPR instituted a process to set earlier deadlines for high-profile, regularly-occurring limited submission opportunities. The intent of the Limited Submission Calendars is to enable the Brown research community more time to plan for these opportunities.
