OVPR 2016 Internal Funding Programs

Targeted Funding Program

Proposals are invited for internal funding to support multidisciplinary projects that demonstrate potential to expand on existing strengths or develop new innovative research related to strategic areas of emphasis for Temple University. This year, the funding theme revolves around Data Science, aiming to connect multiple disciplinary perspectives, including computer science, statistics, computational social sciences, engineering, medicine, biology, genomics and business to harness the potential of large-scale data. Learn more

Bridge Funding Program

Bridge funding provides financial support for existing research programs for which external funding sources are expended. The funding needs to support the continuation of the operations of a lab or program in order to avoid ending the program while external support is being reviewed or pursued. Bridge funding must be used in a strategic and coordinated way to maintain project/lab momentum while assuring effective use of limited resources. The program funds may be used to retain key personnel, the performance of limited laboratory or other research activity to permit the accumulation of new data essential to renew a source of external funding, or to prevent major disruptions in the continuation of research activities that would negatively impact the ability to secure continuation funding from external sponsors. It is expected that all discretionary monies available to an investigator will be expended before using funding provided through this program. Learn more

Seed Funding Program

Seed funding affords an opportunity for special projects with the aim of fostering the engagement of multidisciplinary teams to establish linkages towards attaining extramural funding. This program is open to all disciplines, with prioritization given to projects that have the potential to position the researcher or research team to be competitive for external funding or to bring high impact to Temple University through the proposed work. Learn more
