University Research Development Funds (URDF)
To apply for any type of Institutional Support complete the Research Support Request form.
When seeking matching funds from the OVPR, A completed, signed Research Support Request form (RSR) should be delivered to the Office of the Vice President for Research at least 30 business days before the proposal needs to be submitted. Failure to do so will make you ineligible.
- A significant matching dollar commitment from the Provost, Division Dean(s) and/or Department Chair(s) must be specified in the budget page of the Research Support Request form. Letters of endorsement from the Provost, Dean(s) and Chair(s) must accompany these commitments.
- Signatures of the Provost, Division Dean(s) and/or Department Chair(s) must be included on the Research Support Request form to ensure that each has reviewed the proposal with respect to divisional and/or departmental long-range planning. The signature of the PI/PD is required
For more information on this process, contact Peter Saal at 631 632-9033.
When no OVPR funds are a part of the matching funds, a letter from the party committing matching funds (Provost, Dean, Chair, etc.) must accompany the proposal when submitted to OSP.
