Limited Campus Competitions

Throughout the year, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) administrates several limited campus competitions. These competitions are required because several private foundations and national governmental agencies only allow a limited number of nominees from invited institutions, like CU.  The review process is conducted by an elite group of faculty who were invited by the Vice Chancellor for Research to serve on the OVCR Review Board. Based on their evaluations, nominees are selected to compete for these limited awards.

2015 W.M. Keck Foundation Internal Competition:

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research announces an internal competition for faculty interested in participating in the 2015 W.M. Keck Foundation Grant competition.

Date for full consideration in next round of competition is Tuesday, January 6th, 2015 by 5:00PM.  

Research Program

The Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two specific areas (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering, that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in their field.  Past grants have been awarded to major universities, independent research institutions, and medical schools to support pioneering biological and physical science research and engineering, including the development of promising new technologies, instrumentation or methodologies.  Historically, grants range from $500,000 to $5 million and are typically $2 million or less.
