Purdue Office Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships Limited Submissions

Letters of intent, preproposals, and rankings to the EVPRP should be e-mailed to Purdue's open limited submission competitions, limited submission policy, and template for letters of intent may be found at For any case in which the number of internal letters of intent received is no more than the number of proposals allowed by the sponsor, the EVPRP will notify the PI that an internal preproposal will be unnecessary.

Internal Coordination Required: Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation Young Investigators Program

This program provides grants of approximately $600,000 over four years for young, tenure-track faculty in the chemical and life sciences for projects that “represent a departure from current research directions rather than extensions or expansions of existing programs.” Of particular interest are proposals that open up new avenues of research in chemistry and the life sciences by fostering the invention of methods, instruments and materials.

Eligible applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and should not have been in a tenure-track position for more than three full years (tenure start date after 8/14/2014). Furthermore, applicants can have no more than $225,000 in direct, annualized external funding grants during any the BYI Program Year (Aug-July) at time of application. Start-up funds, department-wide instrumentation grants, and "Transition" grants (such as NIH K99/R00) are not counted toward this total. Applicants may only apply to Beckman twice.

Although this program is not a limited submission, applications do require the electronic signature of both the dean and the president or provost. The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships is assisting the Offices of the President by reviewing the submissions, suggesting edits (if needed), and then securing the president’s approval to submit.
