PRIME Funding

The Program for Research Infrastructure and Matching Expenses (PRIME) provides matching support for research projects at Mizzou, including research on instructional innovation.


MU Researchers applying for external grant funding are eligible to apply for PRIME matching support when the following criteria are met:

  • PRIME matching funds are in support for larger federal grants that align with campus strategic priorities.
  • PRIME matching funds are intended for use by multiā€investigator teams for projects with broad interdisciplinary impact. Sponsor guidelines must require (or encourage) University matching (cost sharing).
  • PRIME matching funds must be for match on proposals for new external funding. PRIME will not be awarded for requests made after an award is received by the University.
