Requesting Summer Research Compensation for Faculty with Academic Year Appointments

Faculty with academic year appointments can request summer research compensation on grants for the months of June, July and August by completing a Summer Research Compensation Request Form

Benefits of the new form include:

  • Requests are based on planned effort, not dollars. 
  • Faculty can easily allocate effort across multiple grant sources.
  • Payments over multiple months can be completed in one request.

Faculty should send completed forms to their Deployed Research Administrator (DRA) as follows:

The DRA will review the request to confirm allowability of charges to the grant and availability of funds.  Because additional approvals are required on the form, all requests should be submitted to the DRA by the 10th of each month in order to meet standard payroll processing deadlines.  The DRA will then move the requests through to completion.

For faculty with 12-month appointments, do not complete this form.  Instead, contact your DRA to initiate a PAF change.

Questions regarding the new form or process, should be directed to

Research Administration Survey

As part of its commitment to increased training and education, OG&C partnered with the Office of Planning and Institutional Research (OPIR) to develop a survey about training topics as they relate to Research Administration.  All members of the Villanova community are invited to participate in the survey to help identify areas of greater need and interest.  OG&C will use the results of the survey to develop future trainings/communications.
