The Office of the Provost invites faculty to submit proposals for the next round of Discovery Grants and Research Scholar Grants.

Both awards are open to all full-time VU-employed (provost-reporting) faculty.

Discovery Grants

  • Serve as a catalyst to external funding sources, supporting new ideas, cutting-edge research and the development of infrastructure. The Discovery Grant program provides a springboard to make external grants possible that will be more attractive to large federal funding agencies such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense and more.
  • Application portal opens Dec. 9.
  • Application deadline is Feb. 10, 2020.
  • Awards announced May 2020.
  • For more information about the program, including eligibility standards, proposals requirements, funding guidelines and previous grantees, visit the program website.

Research Scholar Grants

  • Provide funding for innovative scholarship and creative expression projects that are unlikely to have extramural funding options available. These awards support humanistic research and efforts that result in the creation of artistic or humanist bodies of work.
  • Application portal opens Dec. 9.
  • Application deadline is Feb. 3, 2020.
  • Awards announced in May 2020.
  • For more information about the program, including eligibility standards, proposals requirements, funding guidelines and previous grantees, visit the program website.

All applications for both grants must be submitted online through InfoReady Review, Vanderbilt’s official submission portal.
