UNO Grant Programs
Research Council Grants
Tenured or tenure-track faculty and retained instructors can apply for internal grants reviewed, ranked, and awarded by the UNO Research Council. The winners of these awards are announced at the Office of Research's annual celebration, Achievements in Research, Creativity, and Scholarship (ARCS).
Visit Program Managers
Travel grants for tenured faculty members to visit program managers are based off of the Board of Regents (BoR) Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF).
Principal investigators 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 normally be considered.
The maximum amount available to an awardee traveling to visit a funding agency is $2,000.
Please submit requests for travel grants using the award proposal form.
Additionally, if you would like the Office of Research to invite a particular federal agency program manager to campus, or if you would like the Vice President for Research & Economic Development to visit the program manager, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
BoR TGEF Supplemental Funding
Faculty members are eligible for this supplemental funding from the Office of Research if they have already been awarded a Board of Regents (BoR) Travel Grants for Emerging Faculty (TGEF) for an upcoming visit with program managers at the agency office. The maximum amount available to an awardee traveling to visit a funding agency is $800 per person approved to visit program managers in the BoR award.
Please submit requests for supplemental travel funding using the award proposal form.
