At the university level, there are three ways in which full time VinUni faculty can apply for internal funding:
If you successfully applied for a Seed Grant, congratulations!
You will be asked to accept the terms of the grant in CAYUSE. Once you have agreed to the terms, your project will be in “Active” status. You, as the Principal Investigator (PI), are the budget owner. You will be provided with an Internal Order (IO) number with which you can use to process your financial expenses. You should be supported by your college’s academic assistants on this matter. All the expenses should be in accordance with your final proposed budget plan and recorded for the annual report.
Seed Grants are approved on the basis of their expected contribution in the three priority areas for VinUni:
As PI, you will describe how the project will contribute to these priorities using the funds approved and in the timeline for the project. PIs will be accountable for delivering on those outcomes.
Similar to the Seed Grant project, you will get an approval email from the Vice Provost Office to accept the terms of your award in Cayuse. As PI for the project, you are the budget owner, and have the authority to spend funds in accordance with university policies and in line with the approved outcomes of the award.
