The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) recently announced recipients in the 2019 Research Excellence Program (REP) for the Storrs/regional campuses and UConn Health.

The primary goal of the REP is to provide seed funding to fuel innovative research, scholarship, and creative endeavors with strong potential for significant extramural funding and/or achievements consistent with the highest standards of accomplishment in the discipline. Multi-PI, interdisciplinary projects are encouraged, with the goal of adding to UConn’s reputation for innovative research, scholarship, and creative activities.

Forty-five REP grants were awarded in four categories after a highly selective competition, with 125 total applications. Awards range from $10,000 to $100,000.
