President and Provost’s Funding for Institutionally Related Research

The President and Provost’s Fund supports faculty-led research projects related to the University’s strategic plan, with an emphasis on improving the experiences of students, faculty and staff – anything that could improve life and learning at UVA. The fund has a total pool of $700,000, with a cap of $200,000 per award. Applications are due January 15, 2021.

Funded projects can be completed with one-time funding; alternatively, faculty whose projects have broader reach may use these grants as seed funds to attract longer-term funding from federal agencies, private foundations and other sources. Proposals must be submitted by a dean’s office or, if you are in an institute or center not housed in a school, by Louis Nelson, vice provost for academic outreach. Collaborative proposals are strongly encouraged.
