Principal VEF Grants are typically for proposals seeking funding over $2,000, but typically do not exceed $5,000 per year. In some rare instances, multi-year grants have been awarded for as much as $15,000.
Principal VEF Grant applications are only accepted in Winter Quarter of each Academic Year. If awarded, the grant dollars will not be available for use until the beginning of the next Academic Year on July 1. For example, applications awarded in Winter Quarter will be able to spend dollars starting on July 1. On the application, a recommended end date for the grant project will be entered. Grant timeline should not exceed 3 years.
Principal VEF Grants are generally funded by creating an Internal Grant with a unique University DeptID and Project Number. Recipients are highly encouraged to work with their Division or College's Grant Manager or Business Manager as well as the University's Financial Services Team for the purposes of managing the grant funds.
