Research Training and Revolving Funds (RTRF)

Extramural awards received by the University of Hawaii generate indirect costs, otherwise referred to as “facilities and administrative costs,” to reimburse institutions for costs associated with implementing extramurally funded projects.

Facilities and administrative costs incurred by the program/institution implementing extramurally funded projects include:

  • utilities,
  • data bases,
  • compliance with state and federal regulations,
  • administrative staff,
  • renovations

Hawaii Revised Statute (“HRS”) Chapter 304-8.1 established a research and training revolving fund for indirect costs generated on extramural awards. These funds may be used for three purposes:

a. Research and training purposes which may result in additional research and training grants and contracts;

b. Facilitating research and training at the university; and

c. Further deposit into the discoveries and inventions revolving fund and the University of Hawai‘i housing assistance revolving fund.

The FY2017 allocation and internal distribution of the RTRF funds at Kapiolani Community College are detailed in the attachments below. RTRF funds were earmarked for academic programs, student support services, administrative services, as well as critical needs for the campus. 

Surplus funds were available to administrators, faculty and staff to seek funding for professional development activities. FY2017 RTRF recipients are listed below.
