Emory University Research Committee Awards

The University Research Committee at Emory University announces the call for proposals for the 2017-2018 funding cycle of regular URC and URC-ACTSI (Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute) grants. This is the only award cycle for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Applications are welcome from all regular, full-time Emory faculty, regardless of rank. The criteria for assessing applications is as follows:

  • Academic, scholarly, or creative merit of the project.
  • Feasibility of completing the project during the grant period.
  • Significance of project to applicant’s career as well as the applicant’s potential or demonstrated productivity. Normally, preference will be given to less established researchers who, by virtue of their career stage, have less access to other sources of funding and a longer time horizon for future productivity.
  • For all applicants in areas of research where extramural funding sources exist, the likelihood that University Research Committee support will eventually lead to extramural funding for the proposed work.
  • If the applicant/s have received prior University Research Committee funding, they will need to supply evidence that these projects were successful in terms of extramural funding and/or peer-reviewed publications.

The online application, eligibility requirements, and criteria for submission may be accessed via the University Research Committee website (
