Faculty Development Grant

Faculty Development Grants are available for faculty through the Faculty Development Committee. The grants are not intended to support basic research. Grant proposals for basic research should be submitted to The School of Graduate Studies and Research. Faculty Development Grants are intended to help faculty who are developing scholarly, creative, and research projects that will eventually lead to substantial results such as peer-reviewed publication, creative and performative works, external funding, or usable products.
