Vilas Associates Competition

The Vilas Associates Competition recognizes new and on-going research of the highest quality and significance. Recipients are chosen competitively by the divisional Research Committees on the basis of a detailed proposal.

The Vilas Associate Competition is open to tenure-track and tenured faculty, from the assistant professor level to professors within 20 years of their tenure date. Winners receive up to two-ninths of research salary support (including the associated fringe costs) for both summers 2016 and 2017, as well as a $12,500 flexible research fund in each of the two fiscal years. Faculty paid on an annual basis are not eligible for the summer salary support but are eligible for the flexible fund portion of this award.
