About the Internal Funding Initiatives (IFI) grant program

The Internal Funding Initiatives grant programs administered by the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) are evaluated by peer-review teams composed of University of Iowa faculty and professional staff.  Review terms are served "at will" and are reviewed annually to ensure disciplinary balance on the panel.  Terms are generally 1-3 years in duration. 

If you are interested in serving on a review panel, please contact Cheryl Ridgeway /319-384-3332, Research Support Coordinator in the OVPR.
