Institutional Research and Development Accounts—Michigan Tech institutional research and development funds are general funds allocated to deans, chairs, center/institute directors, and researchers to provide resources to colleges, schools, departments, centers/institutes, and researchers for use in enhancing research and graduate studies. The amounts allocated are calculated from Facilities and Administrative reimbursements collected from sponsored research in the respective units or by the respective researchers. Please become familiar with the allowable and unallowable expenses.
Research Excellence Funds and Faculty Scholarship Grants are awarded on a competitive basis. These awards are monitored internally through the Sponsored Programs Accounting office. Sponsored Programs Accounting sets up individual indices, monitors expenses and works with the PI and Departmental Coordinator to close these accounts.
