P3-R1 Grant Matching Program

The P3-R1 Initiative Overview and Purpose

The University of Idaho is investing an additional $3 million of institutional funds annually in its efforts to increase research productivity and expand the number of doctoral degrees awarded. This funding, enabled by a public-private partnership on the university’s energy infrastructure, is named the P3-R1 Initiative. Approximately $1 million will be invested in new doctoral research assistantships and $2 million will be invested in postdoctoral fellowships.

P3-R1 funding will be deployed through three mechanisms:

  • Matching competitive externally funded grants
  • Matching new, externally funded endowed fellowships raised through advancement
  • Strategic initiatives

The purpose of this investment is to incentivize change and incentivize actions that will:

  • Significantly increase the award of research/scholarship doctoral degrees at U of I
  • Significantly increase the amount of externally funded research at the U of I
  • Increase the effective F&A rate of externally funded research at U of I

The P3-R1 Grant Matching Program

The bulk of P3-R1 funding will be deployed as a match on newly awarded (after January 25, 2021), externally funded grants, as described below.

  • All matches on new awards will be initiated by a request from the lead PI on the award to ORED, by filling out the P3RI Award Form on InfoReady Review.
  • The R1 Committee (Chris Nomura, Brad Ritts, Jerry McMurtry, Ginger Carney, Michael Parrella, Dennis Becker, Philip Scruggs, Larry Stauffer and Sean Quinlan) meet monthly to approve match distribution.
  • R1 Committee will consider adjustments to the programs, such as match ratios, as the program progresses.
  • Matches will be made on first-come basis until funds are committed.

Doctoral Research Assistantships

  • One (1) RA is provided for every two (2) RAs funded on a single new external award.
  • Grant must include full federally negotiated on-campus, industry, or Ag/Forestry experiment station F&A; grants with off-campus and reduced F&A rates are not eligible.
  • Externally funded RAs must include full stipend (at normal departmental rates) and tuition in order to be matched.
    1. Graduate support funds in grant cannot be re-allocated or re-budgeted to other categories over the life of the award, or internal funds (P3-R1 funds) provided must be repaid by department.
  • Match will occur at the same stipend level paid in the grant.
  • Institutional match may only be used to support Ph.D. students.

Postdoctoral Fellowships

  • One (1) Two-Year Postdoctoral Fellowship is provided to all NSF CAREER grant recipients as well as other prestigious early-career grants (such as DARPA Young Faculty Awards).
  • One (1) Two-Year Postdoctoral Fellowship to all PIs who receive an NIH R01 as an Assistant Professor or within one (1) year of promotion to Associate Professor.
  • One (1) Postdoctoral Fellowship for every fully funded externally funded postdoctoral fellowship.
    1. Grant must include full federally negotiated on-campus, industry, or Ag/Forestry experiment station F&A; grants with off-campus and reduced F&A rates are not eligible.
  • One (1) Two-Year Postdoctoral support for PIs with at least 4 fully funded Ph.D. students on a single new grant award, such as a large training grant.
    1. Grant must include full federally negotiated on-campus, industry, or Ag/Forestry experiment station F&A; grants with off-campus and reduced F&A rates are not eligible.

Match Examples

The following examples are indicative of the matches that may be made in certain scenarios, while funding is available:

  • Three-year grant with two (2) fully funded RAs throughout all three years of grants = commit one (1) RA for three years
  • Three-year grant with one (1) fully funded RA throughout all three years of the grant = no match
  • Three-year grant with two (2) fully-funded RAs throughout first two years of the grant = commit one (1) RA for two years
  • Two-year grant with five (5) fully-funded RAs throughout both years of the grant = commit two (2) RAs for two years and one (1) post-doc for one year
