New Senate Faculty Funding Program to Support Recovery of Research/Creative Activity Impacted by COVID-19

Dear Colleagues,

The Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor has allocated $1 million in funding for a pilot Interim COVID-19 Research Recovery Program (ICRRP) as an investment in faculty research/creative activity.

The ICRRP aims to support recovery of research/creative activity that was significantly impacted by COVID-19 for assistant and associate rank faculty (Professor, Professor In Residence, Professor of Clinical X, and Professor of Teaching series).

Applicants can choose from two funding proposal deadlines: September 20, 2021 and January 14, 2022, with funds equitably divided between the two.

The full description of the Interim COVID-19 Research Recovery Program (ICRRP) along with FAQs are available at: The application form (UCI-AP-ICRRP) can be found at:
