Posted July 1, 2021 by Heidi Uhing

The Office of Research and Economic Development is supporting 30 research projects in 2021-22 through its Layman Awards program, which funds work that enhances a researcher’s ability to obtain external funding to support prominent scholarship.  

There are two tracks: the Layman Seed Program, which funds new projects by early-career faculty who are nontenured at the time of submission, and the New Directions Program, which funds tenured faculty who are branching into new research directions or need funding to support pilot or developmental work toward the next step in a funded research program. Awards of up to $10,000 per application for each program are made possible by support from the University of Nebraska Foundation.
