Link to WVU Fellowship Application Form

We have a new procedure for grants that are not going through the Office of Sponsored Programs and for fellowships, regardless of whether or not they go through OSP. For all of these grants, you must complete the new WVU Fellowship Application. The link is here

We will be completing forms for applicable grants already submitted during this fiscal year, so if we are aware of an application, expect that you may receive an email. If we are unaware of the application, please complete a form (if you are unsure, contact us). This is in addition to existing procedures and does not replace the need for grants to go through either OSP or WVU Foundation. 

Please note that if a grant involves IRB, it must go through OSP, even if the funder is a foundation. If you have any questions about what needs to be done for a specific grant, please contact us.

Important Notice Regarding KC Submissions

In light of former Associate Dean for External Research Development Katie Stores' transition to her new role as Assistant Vice President for Research Administration, all KC submissions will now be routed to Lea Herron for college-level approval.

If you have any questions regarding this temporary arrangement, please contact the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences Research Office.

Non-Academic Research Internships for Graduate Students (INTERN) Supplemental Funding Opportunity

Fostering the growth of a globally competitive and diverse research workforce and advancing the scientific and innovation skills of the Nation is a strategic objective of the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Nation's global competitiveness depends critically on the readiness of the Nation's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) workforce and NSF seeks to continue to invest in programs that directly advance this workforce. 

As part of this effort, a supplemental funding opportunity is available in fiscal years FY 2019 and FY 2020 to provide support for non-academic research internships for graduate students to support career opportunities in any sector of the U.S. economy. NSF currently invests in a number of graduate student preparedness activities and has historically encouraged principal investigators (PIs) to include such activities in research proposals to NSF. 

This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) describes new funding opportunities at NSF to ensure graduate students are well prepared for the 21st-century STEM workforce. Supplemental funding requests may be submitted at any time but no later than May 1, 2019 (for available FY 2019 funds) and May 1, 2020 (for available FY 2020 funds).

Important NSF Information on Harassment

Please see the changes to the NSF policy on harassment. Policy changes include  Important Notice No. 144,  which states that the NSF will not tolerate harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, within the Foundation, at grantee institutions, field sites or anywhere science is conducted. NSF has taken steps to help ensure research environments are free from sexual harassment. Additionally, NSF is bolstering our policies, guidelines and communications so that institutions clearly understand expectations and individuals understand their rights.
