The Grants Development Office (GDO) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for funding through the 2017/18 Faculty/Professional Staff Research and Creative Activity Grant Program. This competitive program is designed to supplement support to faculty in all disciplines to begin or maintain a research agenda or to conduct creative activities. Applicants can request up to $3,000 for the funding period ending June 30, 2018. Funds awarded through this program may only be used to cover costs associated with the proposed research or creative activity, such as necessary travel, supplies, student assistants, etc. Priority in funding decisions will be given to junior faculty and applicants who have not received previous awards, and to projects that engage students, as defined in the College’s Strategic Plan 2015. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 5:00 pm. Guidelines and application materials are available on the GDO website. Questions?
