Internal Funding Opportunities
Our office is continually working on initiatives to recognize our faculty and reward creativity, productivity and innovative research endeavors. Check back with us regularly and watch your emails for announcements and opportunities through Researchnotes—our Research & Innovation group email list.
We offer these grants to reward faculty innovation efforts and to enhance our infrastructure at the University in support of research and instruction.
The recipients are awarded funding for their proposed equipment.
Faculty Travel Grants
We encourage faculty to engage in travel that will have clear outcomes linking to the University’s strategic goals and positive impact for their department. These grants provide travel funding resources for faculty and are processed in cycles throughout the year:
- Travel occurring July 1 to Oct 31, 2017 (applications accepted Apr 1 to May 26, 2017)
- Travel occurring Nov 1, 2017 to Feb 28, 2018 (applications accepted Aug 1 to Sept 22, 2017)
- Travel occurring Mar 1 to June 30, 2018 (applications accepted Dec 1, 2017 to Jan 25, 2018)
This opportunity is targeted towards enhancing the competitiveness of proposals that will be re-submitted to federal agencies. It will be open for application during the spring semester each year.
Funding opportunities for up to $3000 to support research, scholarly and creative projects requiring travel. All full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members from the College of Liberal Arts and the Reynolds School of Journalism are eligible to apply.
