Office of the Vice President for Research


Internal Funding & Awards

The Office of the Vice President for Research is proud to support USC's faculty and student researchers directly through our signature group of internal funding and awards programs.

One component of our mission in the Office of the Vice President for Research is supporting researchers by helping to ensure they are able to fund their meritorious work. We take this mission seriously, offering student, faculty and postdoctoral researchers opportunities to fund and showcase their research and scholarly endeavors through competitive funding programs, prestigious awards and innovative methods like crowdfunding.

We also connect community members, alumni and others with the chance to support the University of South Carolina's research efforts directly by making a donation to research through the university's secure giving website. Dollars donated in this way go straight into our signature competitive funding programs, meaning they make a direct, positive impact on USC's research community.
