Provost's Scholarship Development Program

In view of the serious fiscal situation facing the University of Connecticut, and in order to maintain the existing internal programs that help strengthen our research mission and scholarly activity (i.e., small/large grant program, faculty travel funding), the Vice President for Research has indicated that it is very unlikely that funding sources will be available for the Provost Scholarship Development Awards Program in this coming year.

Should funding sources become available, an announcement will be made and this website updated.
