Research faculty in the College of Science and Health have several opportunities to pursue internal funding each year. Some of these funds are provided by the university, others by the college.
Faculty Summer Research Grant program
The Faculty Summer Research Grant Program is available to full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty. This program is designed to support ongoing research, develop new areas of research, and to help faculty become more competitive for external support. Salary stipends provide $4500 for tenure-track full-time faculty, and $5000 for tenured associate and full professors, and up to $1500 can be requested for additional expenses necessary for the project. Applications for the next funding cycle are generally due in the first week of November. See the Faculty Summer Research Grant page for more details.
Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program
The Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program (URAP) supports faculty through providing financial support to undergraduate students to assist and collaborate with faculty members to engage in research. This program is University wide but implemented by the College of Health and Science. Funding is quarterly, for 75 hours per quarter ($900.00), and there are 2 application cycles per year (winter/spring, and summer/fall). See the Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program page for more details.
