Letters of support are needed for applications to the Biological/Health Science subcommittee. Applicants to all other committees are welcomed but not required to submit up to two letters of support.
All applications must be submitted here:
Application period for 2017 URC Awards:
November 4, 2016 - January 6, 2017 @ 5:00pm.
Applications are no longer being accepted.
No. Interdisciplinary proposals are part of the University Research Committee grant program, and the eligibility requirements for consideration allows for an applicant to submit only one proposal per cycle.
No. To be eligble to apply for URC funding, the applicant must be in the following categories:
Professor of Pedagogy, Practice or Performance
The funds cannot be used to pay for the PI's salary. However, it can be used to buy course release time (only applies to Emory College, Candler School, and Oxford College).
If you are requesting URC funds to support course release, you must include a course release form with your Chair's and Dean's signatures. Note that course release is not equivalent to a sabbatical leave; if a URC funded project includes course release, the applicant is still required to participate in all other professional activities required by the department, school and university unless otherwise arranged with your Chair and Dean.
See the URC Awards page.
Yes. However, a request to reallocate funds will need to be sent to the URC coordinator to be approved prior to doing so and an updated budget should be sent with the request.
One month after your award cycle has ended, you are required to send an End of Award report to the URC coordinator and provide the name and email address of your financial administrator to discuss any financial matters that may need to be addressed.
Interdisciplinary research is a mode of investigation by teams or individuals that integrates information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, methods and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge to advance the fundamental understanding of a topic or to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research practice (adapted from a National Academies’ report, 2004).
Yes. The request, which should be for at most one year beyond the original termination date of the grant, must be sent to the URC coordinator, and should include sufficient information to allow the URC co-chairs to evaluate the merits of the request.
