OVPR launches Research Bridge Program
The Office of the Vice President for Research is launching an internal funding program intended to help investigators cover funding gaps in this time of uncertainty with external sponsored programs support.
The Research Bridge Program will provide short-term, limited financial support for faculty research programs during periods when externally funded research programs have experienced a temporary funding gap. Funds will be used to maintain research programs at a minimum "essential" level for a limited time to facilitate success in re-securing external funding.
Application submission for Research Bridge Funding is now open. More information can be found at www.purdue.edu/research/vpr/bridgefunding.
