The Provost’s Wethington Awards program is a faculty award designed to increase the University’s extramural grant and contract funding.  It serves five purposes that are linked to UK’s efforts to move toward national prominence:

  • increase the number of applications to extramural funding agencies;
  • increase the level of grant and contract funding; 
  • provide enhanced opportunities for graduate student and postdoctoral training; 
  • enhance the level of indirect costs revenue for redistribution and investment; and
  • facilitate the recruitment and retention of research-oriented faculty.

 Congratulations the 51 recipients for this year’s Wethington Award.
