ORSP Weekly Update June 23-June 30, 2014

This week's Grant Weekly can be found here.

The opportunities highlighted in this week focus mainly on Human Services, Art, and Mathematics because faculty members within these areas directly inquired about available funding opportunities. If you would like to see more of your department or college's research interests highlighted, please encourage your faculty and staff to contact ORSP today. 

DID YOU KNOW? PIVOT not only pulls private, public, and federal grant funding opportunities, but it also is a great source of undergraduate and graduate students scholarships and award opportunities for faculty, staff, and teams. To learn more about PIVOT, take the time to contact ORSP and ask what PIVOT can do for you. 

It is important to note that due to the Year End Travel Alert put out by the VP for Finance and Administration on June 30, all travel requisitions using MG/FRG funds MUST be received by travel ON or BEFORE 5 p.m., August 21, 2014, with all approvals to be processed on approved MG/FRG applications.

If received after that time, the department will need to cover the expenditures out of FY15 funds.
