Research Stimulation Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Research has funds available for matches on proposals when the funding agency requires them. Requests for matching funds should be made to the OVPR well in advance of submitting the proposal. Such requests will be viewed most favorably when the PI's department and/or college contribute to the match. Commitments from the PI's department and/or college should be obtained in writing before making a request to the OVPR.

Submit requests for matching funds in memo format, addressed to Denise Figlewicz. Memos should be submitted as one PDF through Evisions. Evisions is accessible via the Research Resources tab in Academica.  A WSU access ID and Academica password is required. To submit your internal funding request, please follow the steps in the Internal Evisions user guide.

  • Sponsor name selected should be "Research Stimulation - OVPR"
  • Project title should include which grant proposal for which you are requesting matching funds
  • The Approving Units sections of the Evissions must include "VP Research H09050" to correctly route through the system
