The Provost’s Seed Grant (PSG) is a research incentive that provides faculty with support leading to the submission of extramural funding opportunities.
The Per Diem Support for Pilot/Exploratory Projects is available for per diem costs for animals added to the colony for the purposes of collecting pilot data for grant submission.
Provost Award for Travel
The Provost Award for Travel supports the cost of travel to present, perform, or exhibit scholarly or creative works, specifically in the form of juried or invited presentations/performances.
