UNTHSC FACULTY SALARY BRIDGE FUNDING PROGRAM
The Provost Office has established a Faculty Salary Bridge Funding
Program for UNTHSC investigators. Bridge
funding is intended to provide temporary support to cover faculty salary that
was covered by grant funds when those funds are discontinued. This program
provides matching funds from the Provost office. Investigators are eligible for bridge funding
if one of the two eligibility categories apply. For this
program reference to salary derived from extramural grants also could include
salary from research contracts or salary derived from consultant activity
indicated on grants. For complete information, click here.
The Division of Research & Innovation is pleased to announce the first
call for intramural grant opportunities in the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
Call Opens: Tuesday, July 23, 2013
Proposals Due: Monday, September 9; 8:00 AM
Award Period: 12 months
Award Notification: To be determined
To facilitate the research programs of UNT Health Science Center faculty by supporting pilot studies, preliminary data collection, secondary data analysis and other research activities that will likely result in larger extramural support, enable the development of external partnerships, or enhance the commercial potential of UNT Health Science Center intellectual property.
The total amount of funds available for intramural programs in the fiscal year is estimated to be up to $650,000. The final number of grants funded will ultimately depend on the quality of grants received.

RESEARCH Awards intended to seed new
research programs by UNT Health Science Center faculty. Funds up to $25,000 may
be requested pursuant to program guidelines found here.

CORE Awards provided to cover up to
half the cost of core services at a Texas academic research center, where such
services are not available at the UNT Health Science Center. Matching awards of
up to $10,000 may be requested pursuant to program guidelines found here.
