The University of Washington Bothell would like to support faculty (particularly junior faculty) as they seek to advance their research and scholarship.  For this reason, UW Bothell will coordinate with the Royalty Research Fund (RRF) grant program to utilize the RRF application and review process to fund meritorious but unfunded RRF proposals with research cost recovery dollars.  This mechanism is an acknowledgment of the fact that many unfunded RRF proposals still have a high probability of generating important new scholarly materials or resources, significant data or information.  Consequently, and to as great an extent as possible, indirect cost dollars received on current UW Bothell grants will be re-invested in the research agendas of faculty.

The RRF grant program and the UW Bothell Office of Research Support share the following aims:

  1. To advance new directions in research, primarily: (a) for faculty who are junior in rank, and/or (b) in cases where funding will provide opportunities to increase applicants’ competitiveness for subsequent funding
  2. To support faculty development, particularly in disciplines for which external funding opportunities are minimal.  Funding is not intended to support graduate student or post-doctoral research projects (although such trainees may participate in the proposed research – see RRF budget guidelines).
