The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs is pleased to announce two new internal awards. ORSP SUPPLEMENT TO: BOR TRAVEL GRANTS FOR EMERGING FACULTY (TGEF) TO VISIT PROGRAM MANAGERS Faculty members, who have been awarded a BoR TGEF grant for an upcoming visit with program managers at the agency office, are eligible for this supplemental funding. Because the amount of the Board of Regents (BOR) award may not cover all travel costs, ORSP will supplement BOR TGEF awards. The maximum amount of the supplement available to an awardee traveling to visit a funding agency is $800 per person approved in the BoR award to visit program managers. ORSP TRAVEL GRANTS FOR TENURED FACULTY TO VISIT PROGRAM MANAGERS (Based on BoR Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty) The BOR TGEF program is limited to non-tenured faculty members. Visits by the PI with the cognizant program officer often increase the chances for obtaining funding. Therefore, ORSP is initiating a new internal award program to help tenured faculty members visit federal funding agencies. Faculty members, who hold a regular tenured position at UNO, are eligible for an award. Meetings with federal funding agency program officers are required to take place at the agency office, as this allows for longer, more productive meetings and additional opportunities for interaction with agency representatives. Travel to conferences or workshops at which federal agency program officers are present will not be considered. The maximum amount available to an awardee traveling to visit a funding agency is $2,000. ADDITIONALLY, if you would like ORSP to invite a particular federal agency program manager to campus or to have the Vice President for Research and Sponsored Programs visit the program manager or officer, please send an email to orsp@uno.edu with your request. Notice As this Request for Applications may undergo revisions please check our web site at http://www.uno.edu/orsp/ORSPHome/FundingOpportunities to verify that this version is the most up-to-date. This email was sent to all faculty.
