Research and Training Development Program

The purpose of the pilot Research and Training Development Program (RTDP) is to further incentivize research and training activity by providing investment funding to qualified project directors. The RTDP is comprised of three policies:

  1. Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Investment Program
  2. Academic Year Salary Investment Program
  3. Student Support Investment Program
