SARIF Funding Resumes

After pausing most Scholarly Activity and Research Incentive Funds (SARIF) funds over the summer, the Office of Research and Engagement has officially resumed normal operations for SARIF, albeit on a revised schedule.

As a reminder, tenured and tenure-track faculty with a primary appointment at UT Knoxville, UT Institute of Agriculture, or UT Space Institute are eligible to apply for SARIF. Additional eligibility criteria may apply; please review specific criteria in each SARIF opportunity.

The first SARIF competitions to be relaunched in the next few weeks will be:
