Incentive Award Program

In its 4th year and as a reflection of institutionalization of ADVANCE initiatives, the annual ADVANCE Incentive Fund is fully supported by an allocation from the URI Provost and the URI Council for Research. We are deeply grateful to the Provost and the Council for their support.

The Council for Research Grants Program has issued a call for proposals for the 2007-2008 funding cycle. Funds earmarked for proposals that include ADVANCE goals are contained in the Career Enhancement and the Proposal Development Grant Programs as follows:

In support of the efforts of the ADVANCE Program, the Council for Research especially encourages Career Enhancement/Research Proposal Development proposals that satisfy the general ADVANCE principles of increasing diversity and promoting equity campus wide. These principles include: the need to support underrepresented faculty research and provide them with career development and training opportunities, the need to support individual and department efforts that foster climate change, the need to improve and expand upon available networks and social support services for all underrepresented faculty, and the need to increase administrative collaborations that engage in and promote organizational change.

Submission guidelines for 2006-2007 can be found below:
