Community- Based Research Program
Deadline: February 15, 2019
The Community-Based Research (CBR) Grant Program encourages collaborative research that involves both University and local, regional and/or statewide community partners. This program is intended to promote scholarship and the dissemination of knowledge from existing University-community partnerships with the intent that they produce scholarly articles and/or demonstrate significant potential to receive extramural funding. The award is available to faculty in all disciplines and will provide up to $20,000 in funding.
Career-line and Tenure-line faculty with a minimum of two years at the University who hold at least a 0.75 FTE appointment are eligible to apply.
An applicant is limited to one application per cycle, whether individually or in combination with others. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure collaborators do not have competing interests. In the case where an application is funded, the applicant is not eligible to compete in future CBR grant cycles for three years from the activation date of the successful proposal.
If an application has been turned down by the review panel, the applicant is allowed one re-submission of a revised proposal on the same subject. Revised proposals must indicate changes from the previous proposal and respond to reviewer comments in a point-by-point fashion.
Faculty Scholarly Grant Program
Deadline: February 15, 2019
Formerly known as the Faculty Research and Creative Grants (FRCG), the Faculty Scholarly Grant Program (FSGP) seeks to support significant research and creative scholarly projects in colleges where extramural funding is difficult to obtain. This program will provide faculty with grants up to $6,000 for a period of two years to support scholarly projects and publications. In exceptional circumstances the committee may elect to support an outstanding proposal at a higher level of funding. Proposals are evaluated on their significance, soundness, competence and merits.
Faculty who hold at least a .50 FTE appointment are eligible to apply. Recipients of University Research Committee (URC) grants must submit a final report and close out any remaining URC funds before they are eligible to reapply for the program. If an application has been turned down by the committee, the PI is allowed one resubmission of a revised proposal on the same subject. Revised proposals must include a description of all changes made to the original proposal in a point-by-point fashion.
