Principal Investigator (PI) Bridge Program

This program provides one-time funding to Principal Investigators (PIs) who have lost, or will lose their primary extramural funding. Funds ensure continuation of a research project for an interim period until extramural support can be reestablished.

To better serve our faculty, in response to sequestration and other impacts to grant funding, the Office of Research will implement revised PI Bridge Program requirements on a temporary basis, commencing February 11, 2014

    • Awards will be granted, based on need, for a maximum of one year and $100,000, or the average annual direct costs received by the grantee from a peer-reviewed extramural grant for the previous five years (or three years, if applicable), whichever is less.
    • If the grantee reestablishes funding from other sources during the grant period, the unspent bridge funds will be returned to the Office of Research.
    • Previous receipt of bridge funds will not disqualify you from this program.
    • The Office of Research will provide 60% of each request for Bridge Program funds (i.e., up to $60,000). The remainder of the funds should be provided by the applicant’s Dean’s office and/or department.

 

Please note that the School of Medicine (SOM) has its own internal Bridge Funding request process. In addition to the Principal Investigator Bridge Program Guidelines, SOM PI's should review this document as well: SOM Bridge Funding Request Process

Publication Assistance Fund

The Publications Assistance Fund assists ladder faculty, particularly those early in their career, with the publication of books or monographs and exhibition or performance of works of art representative of University of California standards. The intent of the fund is to defray certain costs that would not normally be covered by the publisher, thus enhancing the possibility of the work to be published. This program is co-sponsored by the Office of Research and the participating colleges and schools.
