News and Information
Summer Salary Exceeding the NIH or CPRIT Salary Cap
Annually, Congress legislatively mandates a provision limiting (capping) the direct salary that an individual may receive under a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant. Though the rate for calendar year 2013 has yet to be issued, it is anticipated that the calendar year 2012 rates (Executive Level II rate of $179,700; based on 100% effort) will continue. Due to these limitations imposed by the NIH on the ability to fully recapture salary on grant and cooperative agreement awards and extramural research and development contract awards, the university has created a pool to assist faculty who might be affected. Get more information at the website of the Office of Sponsored Projects.
Subvention Funding Available
Applications for 2012-2013 Subventions are being accepted until funds run out. The university's subvention grants program provides a maximum award of $5,000. It is designed to assist faculty authors in the publication of scholarly books. Preference will be given to assistant and associate professors. Frequently, university and other scholarly presses demand that authors provide funds to underwrite the publication of scholarly monographs and books. Subvention awards provide financial assistance to faculty members when departments and deans are unable to provide needed support.
Please direct questions to Liza Scarborough, 471-2877.
Funding for another grant program, the Special Research Grants, has been depleted for the academic year.
