The College of Science and Health awards summer grants to recognize and support meritorious scientific projects. Recommendations are made by the college's Research and Faculty Development committee which is comprised of faculty nominated by their home academic units and appointed by the dean.
Faculty Summer Research Grants are available for salary stipends and research assistants. Applicants may also seek funding for additional expenses such as equipment and travel. Because the funding pool for out-of-pocket expenses is limited, faculty are encouraged to submit simultaneous proposals to the University Research Council.
The Faculty Summer Research Grant Program is designed to support ongoing research, to give faculty members an opportunity to develop new areas of research, and to help faculty become more competitive for external support.
To submit an application, please complete the following steps. All applications for summer grants are due the previous fall on November 1.
- Download and read the application instructions.
- Submit the online application form along with all relevant documentation.
- Request unit chair or director to submit an online recommendation form.
For more information, please contact Dr. Susan McMahon, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development.
