Wednesday, Jan. 16, is the deadline for UT faculty members to apply for more than $200,000 in internal funding administered by Research and Sponsored Programs.

“Our annual internal grant programs support a wide range of faculty research and scholarship at the University,” Dr. Richard Francis, director of research advancement and information systems in Research and Sponsored Programs, said.

The Jan. 16 deadline is for the Research Awards and Fellowship Program; the deArce-Koch Memorial Endowment Fund in Support of Medical Research and Development; and the Archaeological Research Endowment Fund.

Also due on January 16 are full proposals to the STEM Research Innovation Program; the Biomedical Research Innovation Program; and the Interdisciplinary Research Initiation Award. However, only those invited to apply on the basis of letters of intent, which were due Nov. 7, may submit to these three programs.

In addition, there are several minor programs that faculty can apply for that do not have deadlines.

“We encourage all full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty from all disciplines to find a program that could help advance their scholarly efforts,” Francis said. “These awards also provide support to help faculty gather preliminary data that will enhance their ability to receive external competitive awards.”
