For those groups preparing to submit either pilot or full UWIRC applications, please note that the Center Director must have from 3% to 10% effort on the award. This effort may be paid for from the UWIRC award, or cost-shared by the department, division or school. If the effort will be covered by cost sharing, please include a brief letter from the Chair or Dean stating the commitment to cover the effort.
