College News

Internal Funding Opportunities

The College has a portfolio of internal funding opportunities. The Research and Innovation Seed Program (SciRIS) awards seed funding for high impact collaborative proposals that build teams, pursue fundamental discoveries, and create societal impact. There are other internal funding opportunities in addition to the SciRIS awards. Deadlines 15 April, 15 July, 15 December.

Innovation (Industry Partnership) Award

The College of Science Industry Partnership Award provides critical resources for projects that take a new direction, utilize a new technology or are in the “proof-of-concept” phase. Undergraduate & graduate students and faculty researchers can participate, with a preference given to graduate students and faculty who are developing new areas of research and/or establishing or augmenting research partnerships with external industrial partners. The Innovation award is made possible by funds from the College of Science Venture Fund.

Checklist for incoming researchers

This checklist is intended to assist incoming faculty in their preparations to initiate research-related activities at OSU. Please review all relevant areas below and contact the related units as appropriate. This checklist is for your reference and does not need to be returned to the Research Office or Environmental Health and Safety.

The Southern Regional Education Board Doctoral Scholar Program

The SREB Doctoral Scholar Program was established more than 20 years ago to increase the number of underrepresented scholars who earn the Ph.D. and to address the need for a more diverse college faculty. The SREB provides multiple layers of support, including, but not limited to financial assistance and research funding, but also career counseling, job postings and a scholar directory for networking and recruiting.

NASA Minority Serving Institutions Exchange

The MSI Exchange is a tool that supports your search for innovative and diverse academic collaborators by curating STEM offerings and capability statements of MSIs nationwide. The MSI Exchange can inform partnerships for teaming opportunities and competitive federal awards such as contracts, cooperative agreements, and grants.

Faculty Senate Awards

Deadlines range from April - June, but many limit the number of nominations per College, so check the dates of interest for internal deadlines. Note that the OSU Impact Award for Outstanding Scholarship has a limited submission. Our internal deadline is one month before The Senate's deadline. Contact us with questions.

Campus-wide cost share request form

College pre-award units across campus have teamed up and created a cost share template and request form.
