Faculty Summer Research Grant Program

​​​​​​​​​​​​The College of Science and Health awards summer grants to recognize and support meritorious scientific projects. Recommendations are made by the college's Research 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. Summer grant applications are due on November 1. ​For 2022 grants, a second deadline has been added on February 15

  1. Download and read the application instruct​​​ions​​​​​​​.
  2. Request unit chair or director to submit an online recommendation form.​ Please note, it is recommended that you notify your chair or director of your plan to apply for the grant and request the letter of support 2 weeks prior to the grant deadline (October 16 or February 1). The chair recommendation form is due the same day as the grant application (November 1 or February 15).
  3. Submit the online application form along with all relevant documentation.
