Research and Creative Endeavors Program for 2018-2019
The Research and Creative Endeavors Program is designed to provide faculty with seed money to pursue a research or scholarly project and eventually seek and attract external funding for their work. As in the past, in making awards, the Committee will especially emphasize projects that have the potential to encourage new faculty, women and minorities; to support research and creative endeavors across the disciplines; and to attract external resources. The maximum award per project is $1,000. Generally, this program does not provide funding for conference travel, computer equipment and general office expenses. Applications must be submitted through moodle.
Deadlines: October 5, 2018 and April 12, 2019, 4 p.m.
Grant Development Program 2018 - 2019
This program will provide awards of up to $2,000 to full-time faculty or professional staff to pursue the development of new proposals for submission to external funding agencies. Half of the award is provided upfront and the second half after submission of an external grant application. All successful applicants will be required to submit a full proposal (with a budget of at least $100,000/yr.) that allows full or nearly full indirect costs, to an external sponsor within one year from the time of award. It is expected that those interested will have identified a potential sponsor and contacted that sponsor to discuss funding possibilities. The application form requires a description of the proposed project and a project time line that incorporates the applicant's plans for meeting the grant submission deadline. Allowable budget items include travel, supplies, books, duplicating, telephone, etc. Applications must be submitted through moodle.
