Internal Funding

To support and encourage research endeavors at the university, the Office of the Vice President for Research offers a variety of internal research funding opportunities for which faculty are eligible to compete. Details about our competitions, links to guidelines and application forms, and past award recipients can be found in the list below.

APPLICATION PROCESS FOR ALL INTERNAL FUNDING REQUESTS:

All internal funding requests will be submitted through Cayuse, which accommodates both internal and external funding submissions. Each internal funding program has its own application guidelines to be followed. Prepare a PDF application (see table) that will be uploaded into Cayuse. All approval signatures on the department and college/school level will be routed through the Cayuse system and must be approved by the relevant OVPR internal funding deadline.

WHAT'S NEEDED?

  1. To access Cayuse: WSU Access ID and Academica password. 
  2. Internal Cayuse user guide
  3. Inclusion of pertinent program submission documents (see table)
