Bridge Funding Program

Visit Webpage

The Bridge Funding program provides bridge funding to support faculty to span a temporary funding gap in critical research programs.

Bridge Funding awards are typically used to support on-going research programs that have lost funding, although these funds may also be used to support new research directions, at the discretion of the recipient.

Maximum of $50,000 may be applied for through the Provost; all funding requests must be matched 1:1 by the applicant’s college/school.  A total of $500,000 is available for each round of awards. For the May 1, 2021 deadline, proposals may reduce the school/department match by half for Bridge Funding applicants facing COVID caregiving challenges.
