- Open Publishing Support Fund
The Open Publishing Support Fund (OPSF) covers article processing charges for eligible peer-reviewed, open access journals. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with a maximum award of $2500 per request. Requests for funding should be made immediately after an article is accepted for publication. Visit the InfoReady Review portal to preview the application and apply.
- New Centers & Institutes
The Offices of the Provost and the Vice Chancellor for Research accept preliminary applications for new research and instructional centers on a rolling basis. Investments in centers are considered in relation to UTC’s Strategic Plan, campus priorities, and the demonstrated capacity of each proposed center to rapidly achieve and maintain sustainability with predominantly external funding. Prior to submitting a Center proposal, it is strongly recommended that applicants schedule a meeting with the VCR or designee and the Provost or designee (for instructional centers) to discuss your proposed concept, timeframe, and anticipated source(s) of funds.
- Additional Resources
UTC offers other internal grant opportunities to support a wide range of faculty development activities including student - faculty research collaborations, curriculum development, technology and equipment acquisition, and conference travel support. These internal grants are administered by various units on campus. While these internal grants do not operate under the auspices of the ORSP, we encourage new faculty, faculty changing from one research field to another, and those interested in developing a funding or research track-record to consider these options as part of a long-term external funding strategy.
