The Faculty Research Travel Grant Program aims to improve the competitiveness of research proposals from UO faculty by facilitating interactions with prospective federal or foundation sponsors. The program grants travel funds of up to $1,000 for faculty to meet with program managers at federal funding agencies and private foundations.
The competitiveness of the federal funding climate presents unique challenges to principal investigators, especially as unanticipated gaps in funding have negative effects on the continuation of active research programs. The Bridge Funding Support program provides interim resources to mitigate a challenging federal climate and to facilitate the ongoing viability of federally funded research projects.
