Professor of Art Vesna Pavlović has been awarded a Scaling Success Grant in the May 2022 cycle of the new internal funding opportunity for her research project titled “Woven Wind.” The Scaling Success Grant supports faculty as they leverage their research into larger, more competitive awards from federal, foundation or industry sponsors.
The Scaling Success Grant is neither a seed fund for new directions nor a bridge fund for faculty in between external sponsor awards. Instead, the program specifically seeks faculty who have developed competitive proposals for projects that have already generated interest and encouragement from external sponsors.
Research Development and Support, within the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, works closely with interested faculty on developing sponsor interest and will assist Scaling Success awardees in developing their proposals for submission to the targeted external sponsor. All applicants to the Scaling Success program receive tailored feedback from reviewers, regardless of whether their proposals are funded.
Information regarding the application processes and deadlines for all 2022–23 internal awards will be announced in August. Please send any questions about OVPR internal awards to email@example.com.
