Internal Funding for Faculty

The Office of Research and Sponsored Projects Operations (ORSPO) offers several opportunities and resources for faculty to find funding for their research and research related endeavors. The ORSPO manages internal awards for faculty, assists with external funding searches, and provides support and resources for researchers seeking grants. 



As of August 1, 2017 all purchase requests, reimbursements, or check requisitions for approved budget items must now be submitted online using this form. If you have already submitted any items prior to this report they will be processed and any subsequent items must use the online form.

*Any computing equipment such as hardware, software, or services must request a quote from Jack Rogers at jack@uiwtx.edu before submitting the Purchase Order request. Please see the technology purchasing policy at http://www.uiw.edu/ird/faculty-staff/purchasing-instructions.html

These funds are to be used only for the purposes stated in the proposal and budget. It is understood that these funds will be used for such purposes substantially in accordance with the approved budget. It is also understood that no substantial variances, including the time of expenditures, will be made from the approved budget without the ORSPO's prior approval in writing.

In general, FERA recipients are allowed a certain degree of latitude to re-budget within and between budget categories to meet unanticipated needs and to make other types of post-award changes. Written approval is required for budget modifications. Recipients shall immediately notify the ORSPO of developments that have a significant impact on the award-supported activities. Also, notification shall be given in the case of problems, delays, or adverse conditions which materially impair the ability to meet the objectives of the award. This notification shall include a statement of action taken or contemplated, and any assistance needed to resolve the situation.

Budget Modifications must be submitted using the ORSPO approved budget template.



This applies to all faculty awards including:

  • Faculty Sabbatical Award
  • Faculty Workload Reassignment Award
  • Faculty Research Endowment Award
  • Faculty Graduate Research Assistant Award

Faculty receiving institutional financial support are required to complete this form to document work completed for institutional assessment, program effectiveness, and to retain eligibility for future awards. Attach a single copy of all written materials (book chapters, journal articles, abstracts, posters, grant applications, etc.) completed as a result of the award.

Please submit this form and its attachments within four weeks of the completion of the award period to the ORSPO.  Electronic submission of all documents and attachments is required.
