Research Initiation Program (RIP)

The RIP Awards are designed for faculty to seek funding to jumpstart a line of research or for established faculty to investigate a new line of research. RIP awards are designed for projects that are likely to result in a peer-reviewed publication, external funds, or other creative discipline-specific academic products.

Awards can be up to $10,000. Only research-related expenses will be allowed. Examples of allowable expenses include equipment, equipment maintenance, stipends to support technical personal and< undergraduate research assistants, supplies, and travel associated with conducting the research (such as traveling to interview research subjects). Faculty stipends, professional dues, and travel for conferences/professional development will not be permitted.

All RIP awards are for a 1 year fixed term (June 1 - May 31). A one-time, no-cost extension may be granted. Requests for extensions must be submitted in writing to the RIP Committee by April 30. Any remaining balance at the end of the award period will be forfeited and returned to WSSU. The PI of the project is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the project budget at all times.

Submit proposals to The Office of Sponsored Programs via RAMSeS (Research Administration Management System and electronic Submission), by March 17th, 2017. Contact Dr. Aaron Keith McCullough at (336) 750-2606 or mcculloughak@wssu.edu for assistance with RAMSeS.

For more details please read the RIP Guidelines.
