UT System Research Incentive Program for the Comprehensive Universities
The UTrip-CU Program was created to incentivize research-oriented gifts for the Comprehensive Universities of the UT System, including UTPA and UTB, and UT System has made provisions for UTrip-CU to benefit the new UTRGV. UTrip-CU will provide a total of $1 million in matching funds to assist the Comprehensive Universities in leveraging private gifts for the enhancement of research productivity and faculty recruitment. Private gifts that are made for research-oriented purposes will allow the University to receive the benefit of a match from UT System, with the match rate determined by the size of each gift.
