The University Research Committee (URC) announces the call for proposals for funding to be used during 2022-2023 in the following categories:

  • URC Regular Award
  • URC Interdisciplinary Award
  • URC-Halle Institute Global Research Award (specific criteria apply)

All regular, full-time Emory faculty, regardless of rank, are welcome to apply. URC eligibility follows the criteria for “full-time faculty” as defined within each school. Part-time faculty and postdocs, fellows, adjuncts, research track lines in some schools are not eligible.

Each applicant may submit one application selected from one of the following categories:

  • Arts: visual and performing
  • Biological and health sciences
  • Humanities
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Mathematics and natural sciences
  • Social sciences

Each category, with the exception of Interdisciplinary, awards up to a maximum of $30,000 per application. Most regular URC proposals will have one principal investigator (PI). Interdisciplinary applications with one PI may be awarded up to a maximum of $30,000. Two or more PIs are required in the interdisciplinary category to be eligible for a $40,000 award. 

Application policies and guidelines for each category may be found on the University Research Committee website. The online application and criteria for submission also may be accessed on the URC website. Proposals must be submitted via the URC online grant application portal by Friday, Jan. 14, 2022.

Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.
