Internal Faculty Grants

Each year the University conducts an intramural grant competition, the Faculty Development Grants for full-time tenure-track and tenured faculty. These grants are intended to:
    • foster excellence in the scholarship of discovery (research), pedagogy, application (service), and creative works
    • be a source of seed money to enhance opportunities for extramural funding
    • advance the mission of the University.
As noted in the letter dated September 5, 2014, you must submit ten (10) copies of your proposal to the Office of Provost no later than Friday, October 31, 2014. Your proposal narrative should be no longer than three doubled-spaced pages, include a detailed budget and budget justification (not included in the three page limit), and conform to the specifications outlined in the call for proposals.

You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents.
