Friday, Sept. 28, deadline to apply for Regular Faculty Research Grants & Summer Excellence Awards


Posted on Friday, September 21st, 2012 by UNCG Research.

Friday, Sept. 28, is the last day faculty may submit applications to the Office of Research and Economic Development for Regular Faculty Research Grants and Summer Excellence Awards.

Full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty, clinical faculty, research faculty, and academic professional faculty may all apply for the Regular Faculty Research Grants and Summer Excellence Awards. Applicants may seek up to $5,000 when applying for Regular Faculty Research Grants (or $10,000 for collaborative projects submitted by two or more UNCG faculty). These funds cannot go towards faculty salary. Summer Excellence Research Awards also offer $5,000 in funding but go exclusively to summer salary.

The Faculty Senate’s Research Grants Committee will review the grant applications and make recommendations to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development. Faculty Research Grants are awarded for an 18 month period, while Summer Excellence Research Awards are awarded for the summer following notification of the award.

Applications for New Faculty Research Grants and New Faculty Summer Excellence Research Awards are not due until the last working day of January. 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.
