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, Brooke Blevins, Suzie Long 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.
  • The R1 Committee may consider allowing reallocation of P3R1 funding from doctoral students to postdocs or vice versa on a case-by-case basis.
  • Matches will be made on first-come basis until funds are committed.

Doctoral Research Assistantships

The match on doctoral research assistantships is being suspended as of November 2022. The program has successfully committed funds for doctoral assistantship support through FY24. Matches remain available for postdoctoral fellowships (see below).

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.
    2. The award must have a minimum of one (1) postdoc-year of support to qualify
  • 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.
