What is it?

Internally Restricted Research Funds are created to support research activity.  The funds may come from a combination of sources such as start-up funds, overhead distributions, residual balances from research agreements, or research awards from the University.

Why is it important?

Internally Restricted Research Funds support research activities but offer more flexibility than many research agreements because there is no reporting requirement and no termination date.
