URA Committee Members

URA proposals are evaluated by an interdisciplinary faculty review committee. Once proposals are received, additional ad hoc reviewers may be added to the standing committee as needed. Discipline-specific subcommittees give particular scrutiny to the proposals in their fields, using an evaluation rubrics. In a final selection meeting, the full committee considers the rankings and recommendations of the subcommittees in making final funding decisions. As many worthy proposals as possible receive full or partial funding, up to the limit of available funds.
