Reassignment Time Grant (RTG)


The joint UW-System-WiSys Reassignment Time Grant program offers limited funds to System faculty to exclusively support faculty time to write extramural grant applications. Funding may be requested for any discipline, but preference will be given for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics applications.

Applications will reviewed on a first come, first serve basis. Grants will be limited to a maximum of $3,500, with contributions for this total being made by UW System, WiSys, and the faculty's campus.

Since this grant has a required institutional match, please talk to your chair and dean early in your planning process. Your dean can contact the Provost on your behalf to ensure funds are available.
