Internal Funding

​ 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.

College funding

All full-time faculty are eligible to apply for the Faculty Summer Research Grant (FSRG). 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 $5300 for tenure-track and eligible full-time faculty, $58​00 for tenured associate and full professors, and up to $1500 which ​​can be requested for additional expenses necessary for the project.​ Summer grant applications are due on November 1. ​For 2022 grants, a second deadline has been added on February 15. ​ See the Faculty Summer Research Grant page for more details.

University funding

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, and there are two application cycles per year (winter/spring, and summer/fall). See the Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program page for more details.
