Research training grant incentives
Earlier this year, the VPR announced research training grant programs to enhance and support grant preparation and the application process. As a reminder, these programs are a resource for faculty. The two components of this program are:
1. A one-time financial incentive ($5,000) for the Program Director upon submission of a competing (new or renewal) institutional research training grant application.
2. In the absence of allowable programmatic salary support from the sponsor, 10% salary support for the Program Director will be provided throughout the duration of the award. For those institutional training grants that provide limited salary support (<10%) for the Program Director, the difference will be provided as described above to reach 10% salary support. Salary support will not be provided during no cost extension periods.Faculty who are submitting, or planning to submit competitive applications, on or after this date should contact the VPR’s Office (Rebecca Smith, VPR@uthscsa.edu) as early in the process as possible, and keep the office informed of the status of the grant application throughout its cycle.
We look forward to your continued participation and increasing the number of institutional training grants.
