Intramural Funding Opportunity Announcements

USU INTRAMURAL COVID-19 Research Funding Opportunities

There are no internal (USU Intramural) funding opportunities.

USU provides intramural awards to its faculty and students from the DoD appropriation via the Intramural Research Program (IRP). Similar to extramural awards, projects funded from the DoD appropriation are time-sensitive. Consequently, applicants must complete their projects within the time-frame designated in the announcement or award letter. The period of performance can be one or several years. The USU IRP offers several awards listed below.

Eligibility: Junior and tenured USU faculty that are categorized as billeted, non-billeted military personnel, and those that received a PI Eligibility Waiver are eligible to apply for intramural awards. (See PI Eligibility Policy for more information)

How to apply: Eligible faculty members can apply for intramural awards in response to a funding opportunity announcement (FOA). It is suggested that applicants adhere to the instructions written in the FOA that describe how to apply. If a faculty member would like to request funding that is not associated with a FOA, the applicant can submit their application electronically to and request scientific review for funding. Applications that are not submitted in response to a FOA will be reviewed on a quarterly basis. Faculty members should work with their department’s IRP Grants Specialist and SPA when building their applications. When submitting an application the subject line should include the following information, if applicable:

  • Faculty member’s name 
  • Name of the announcement (if responding to an announcement) or "Request for funding"
  • Fiscal Year
