In mid-March, researchers at UC Davis were asked to adjust or reduce their work when possible in order to limit social contact and minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus. This “ramp down” meant that some campus research was postponed.
For researchers with extramural funding, this lost productivity may mean funding will run out before their project is complete. Early career faculty, as well as graduate students, may have been disproportionately affected by the lost research productivity because the research is necessary to achieve tenure, progress in their series or complete their degrees.
To help offset this impact, the UC Davis Office of Research is offering awards of up to $43,200 to assistant-level senate faculty (including lecturers with potential security of employment) and adjunct assistant professors.
These awards will provide one-time funding to eligible principal investigators who had to curtail research activities due to the pandemic.
Awards are dependent on availability of funds and will be granted, based on need, for a maximum of one COVID-Impacted Research Funding award per principal investigator.
More details are available in the COVID-Impacted Research Funding Program guidelines (PDF).
The deadline to submit the application form (PDF) and budget workbook (Excel) is Friday, October 30. Questions can be addressed to ORBusiness@ucdavis.edu.
