Research Support

Important information to note as to faculty grant applications

It is the responsibility of the applicant to track and make sure that their Faculty Research Grant and/or Summer Faculty Fellowship application is reviewed by, and signed by, both the Academic Unit Leader (Department Head/Director) and Dean as an approved application, and submitted through Dynamic Forms prior to the deadline noted for each funding source. Late applications will not be considered.


Faculty Research Grants will be awarded to support new research, creative or scholarly activities or for high-quality projects not likely to receive external funding.

Summer Faculty Fellowships allow faculty members engaged in research or in creative activities to devote intense thought and activity to a single project over the course of a summer.

International Travel Awards provide financial assistance to faculty who will be traveling abroad to advance the University mission in a manner related to sharing the results of research.
