The Office of Research and Economic Development is not currently accepting applications for New Faculty, Regular Faculty or Summer Excellence Grants

There are four types of intramural, competitive grants available through the Office of Research and Economic Development. They are New Faculty Research Grants, New Faculty Summer Excellence Research Awards, Regular Faculty Research Grants, and Regular Faculty Summer Excellence Research Awards. Faculty apply for these grants by submitting an application with supporting budget forms by the appropriate deadline.

The Faculty Senate’s Research Grants Committee reviews grant applications and makes recommendations to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development. A New Faculty or Regular Faculty Research Grant may be held simultaneously with a Summer Excellence Research Award, but a New Faculty and Regular Faculty Research Grant cannot be held simultaneously. Recipients of a previous research grant must submit a final report and a proposal for external support before applying for another research grant.
