Application and Selection Process
Interested University of Idaho faculty, qualified professional staff and students (graduate and undergraduate) must complete and submit an application packet through the University of Idaho Electronic Internal Proposal Routing System – EIPRS (submission instructions). A complete packet includes a cover page, detailed budget, summary (including the relevance of the proposed project to the current mission statement of the Stillinger Herbarium), a project narrative (not to exceed two pages), a project timeline (one page) and biographical data. Student applicants are eligible to be principal investigators, but must have a faculty member identified as a co-investigator, who is willing to mentor the student through the proposal and award process. If you have any questions about the application process or forms, please contact the Office of Research and Economic Development at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications will be accepted starting in November with a deadline of January 23, 2019 by 5 p.m. PT.
Applicants will be notified in February after they are reviewed and approved or declined. Funds will be awarded in early March.
The number of awards made is based on available funds and at the discretion of the Herbarium Administrative Committee based on the merit of the project and its contribution to the current mission of the Stillinger Herbarium. Upon award in early March, funds will be administered by the awarded department under the supervision of their college’s departmental Grant Administrator. When the project is complete, a final report must be submitted to the Office of Research and Economic Development.
