Internal Funding at ORD
The Office of Research Development coordinates funding opportunities sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. These funding opportunities support junior faculty with research and publication expenditures, and help faculty and principal investigators offset travel costs for visiting sponsoring agencies. Past opportunities facilitated innovative, cross-disciplinary research collaborations.

Full-time members of the research faculty are eligible to apply for support. Other full-time staff routinely engaged as principal investigators on scholarly or scientific research, such as librarians or curators, are also eligible.
Small grants may be made to cover supplementary expenses involved in adding sponsor visits to travel already scheduled for other purposes. The program also supports travel to negotiate awards, if such negotiation is required by the sponsor before an award can be made.
The maximum travel grant is $400.00.
