EPSI program discontinued

Representation of a stamped cancellation notice. Text reads "cancelled."

An OARS program designed to encourage frequent and timely submission of proposals for external funding is being discontinued. As of December 1, 2018, no further funds will be awarded through the External Proposal Submission Incentive (EPSI) program.

After running the program for five years, OARS staff determined that relatively few faculty were taking advantage of the incentive. In response, Jim Oris, Associate Provost for Research, decided the funds allocated to the program could be better used to support faculty proposal submission in other ways.
