University Research Committee accepting funding proposals for 2023-24

Applications will be accepted Oct. 3, 2022, through 11:59 p.m. Jan. 17, 2023.

The University Research Committee (URC) announces the annual Call for Proposals for funding to be used during 2023-2024 in the following categories:

  • URC Regular Award
  • URC Interdisciplinary Award
  • URC-Halle Institute Global Research Award (For those conducting research primarily outside of the United States)

All regular, full-time Emory faculty, of all ranks, are welcome to apply. URC eligibility follows criteria for “full-time faculty” as defined within each school. Postdocs, fellows, adjuncts, research track lines in some schools, and part-time faculty are not eligible.

Each applicant may submit one application selected from one of the following categories:

  • Arts: Visual and Performing
  • Biological and Health Sciences 
  • Humanities
  • Interdisciplinary 
  • Mathematics and Natural Sciences
  • Social Sciences

Each category, with the exception of Interdisciplinary, awards up to a maximum of $30,000 per application. Most regular URC proposals will have one principal investigator. Interdisciplinary applications with one PI may be awarded up to a maximum of $30,000. Two or more PIs are required in the Interdisciplinary category to be eligible for a $40,000 award. 

Application Policies and Guidelines may be found on the URC website. The online application and criteria for submission may be accessed on the URC website. Proposals must be submitted via the URC online grant application portal by 11:59 p.m. Jan. 17, 2023. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. 

Notification of awarded proposals is anticipated in late April 2023. Availability of award funds is expected four to six weeks after the Notification of Award.

URC award information session and the URC grant writing training session will be offered in November 2022. Please email questions or requests for additional information to the University Research Committee administrative support,
