PSCoR is an annual Research Office program that provides funding for research that will leverage external funding opportunities. As a condition of the award, each PI is required to submit a proposal to an external agency. That specific proposal must be externally reviewed prior to submission. A faculty member can be a PI on one proposal and co-PI on up to two.

West Virginia University faculty are urged to submit proposals for grants that provide internal funding for activities that will lead to external research funding.

Proposals will be reviewed by WVU faculty and Research Office staff on the basis of merit and the potential for the WVURC investment to lead to increased extramural funding.

Proposals should be routed through your Associate Dean for Research so that your college is aware of your submission.
