REP Awards

The primary goal of the Research Excellence Program (REP) is to provide seed funding to promote, support, and enhance the research, scholarship, and creative endeavors of faculty at UConn, including (but not limited to) the strategic and emerging areas delineated in the Academic Plan.  As an outcome of these awards, recipients are expected to submit proposals to extramural sponsors (federal, state, private, industry, or foundation sponsors) and/or carry out activities consistent with the highest standards of accomplishment in their discipline. The REP is designed to assist faculty, regardless of rank, in all areas of scholarly work and to facilitate the competitiveness of extramural funding opportunities as well as contribute to UConn’s national and international reputation as a premier research university.
