COVID19 Replenishment Awards for Affiliate Members

Given the intent of these awards: APPLICATIONS FOR THIS AWARD ARE DUE OCT. 25.

These awards will be one time competitive awards for up to $750. The award can be used ONLY to replenish research resources lost directly as a consequence of the research “shut-down”. A partial list of acceptable requests include expired solutions/reagent and re-establishing animal colonies. These funds are not available to initiate new projects, absorb costs already accounted for, or to support new components within a project. They are available to help Affiliate Members recover losses. The total number of awards is yet to be determined. Requests will be reviewed by the UF CARE Executive Committee. If a mentor sits on the committee, he/she will be recused and replaced by another UF CARE faculty member.

Funds will be provided as reimbursements with vendor receipt, or similar invoice, to the appropriate academic department. Direct disbursement to the Affiliate Member or faculty member will not be made. Fund distribution will be handled by Bobbi Reynolds in the Department of Psychiatry.

  • (e.g., relevance of the reagent/amount lost; animals needed, costs for replacement, include specific information from vendor.)
  • Accepted file types: pdf.
    Confirming that the request is directly related to the Affiliate member’s project: i.e., without these funds the project could not be accomplished.
  • If other sources are also being accessed, these funds must be acknowledged with a clear statement as to how multiple sources address different project needs.
