Faculty invited to submit Rapid Advancement Micro-grant Program proposals; application portal now open

The Office of the Provost invites faculty to submit proposals for the inaugural round of Rapid Advancement Micro-grant Program awards.

RAMP awards are designed for smaller-scale funding opportunities that require a quick response. Examples of fund use may include travel to meet with collaborators or bring them to campus, the acquisition of materials for research or projects, or support for the development of creative works.

RAMP will provide support from $500 to $3,000, as the budget allows, with smaller requests encouraged. RAMP replaces similar past programs, like the Arts and Humanities and Global micro-grant programs and the Vanderbilt Strong program.

For more information about the program, including eligibility standards, proposal requirements and funding guidelines, visit the program website.

  • Funding will be available beginning July 1.
  • The application process is rolling, with reviews occurring monthly.
  • Applications must be submitted online through InfoReady Review, Vanderbilt’s official submission portal.
  • Questions about either program may be emailed to Schyler Turrin.
