UCI researchers can find support for their projects from various on-campus entities. Most calls for proposals are announced via email, or check these websites to learn more.

Office of Research

UCI’s Office of Research has released calls for proposals for seed funding, bridge funding, and infrastructure support in recent years.

Bridge Funding

To sustain research projects that no longer have extramural funding, UCI’s Office of Research has a bridge funding program that provides one-time support to assist with re-establishing external funding. The Hellman Fellows Fund provides support for the research and creative activities of promising faculty at the Assistant Professor rank.

BioSci-SOM pilot funding

The School of Biological Sciences and School of Medicine releases a call for proposals to fund research projects that bring together faculty from the two schools to attack a common problem.

Funding Internal to UCI

UCI’s Office of Research maintains a website that lists calls for proposals offered by UCI entities and that are open to UCI faculty and researchers. Information about internal reviews for limited funding opportunities can also be found here.

Faculty Research, Travel and Computing

Bio Sci supports the research, travel, and computing needs of its faculty. Faculty receive a call for applications in December with details about available funds and application process.
