The Bridge Program is designed to span a gap for researchers who have temporarily lost significant external research funding.
Full-time Baylor faculty members may apply for Bridge funding. Additionally, bridge funding is limited to:
The faculty member must provide evidence demonstrating efforts to establish or re-establish funding before becoming eligible for bridge funding support.
A one to one matching of OVPR funds by the department, college, or school or some combination of these funding sources is required.
Applicants must obtain approval from the department chair and dean of the college or school prior to submission of a bridge funding request.
Bridge funding requests may be submitted at any time. However, requests that are approved for funding are disbursed in the next fiscal year (June 1 to May 31) with a start date of June 1.
