Fund for Research
The Fund for Research was established in 1966 with a generous alumnae gift. The Fund offers small grants to faculty members and senior staff to pursue scholarly research for professional development and/or institutional research contributing to the educational functioning of the University. "Research" is to be interpreted broadly — to embrace both analytical and creative efforts.
Grants will be made in amounts not exceeding $2,500. Proposals are accepted for projects of up to two (2) years in length.
Full-time faculty members and senior administrative staff are eligible to apply. Applicants are advised that Fund for Research grants are awarded through a competitive process.
Please submit one (1) original in hard copy to the Office of Sponsored Programs, Room E-206, MCB, by 4:30 p.m. on the due date. You should also submit an electronic copy to Valerie Beaudrault.
