Spring 2017 Faculty Development Awards and University Small Research Grants announced
Faculty Development Awards and University Small Research Grants are awarded each fall and spring by the Office of the Vice President for Research through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
Faculty Development Awards support travel expenses to present research, scholarly or creative work or a performance at an international meeting or to visit an external funder or sponsor. University Small Research Grants are seed grants to support small research projects, scholarly activity and other creative efforts. Both programs are meant to catalyze a faculty member’s RSCAD career success. As such, new faculty and faculty from disciplines with minimal outside support are given priority for both awards, as are trips or projects that enhance awardees’ abilities to compete for extramural funding. Unsuccessful applicants are given feedback on how to improve their proposals.
In the spring 2017 round, 29 Faculty Development Award proposals were submitted for a total amount requested of $66,700. University Small Research Grants proposals numbered 28, for a total amount requested of $91,800.
Spring 2017 Faculty Development Awards and University Small Research Grants awards totaled $72,878. Congratulations to all awardees. Continue reading “Faculty Activities”
