Internal Funding

Research Council Grants

Research Council Grants are awarded to support research, scholarship, and creative activities conducted by tenured, tenure‐track, and ranked non‐tenure track faculty members, with an earned doctorate (or the discipline’s highest earned terminal degree; e.g., MFA), at the level of Assistant Professor and above.

Research Council Grants provide funds for project expenses totaling as much as $12,500.  There are two levels of funding:  Small grants are for requests up to $1,000 and large grants are for requests greater than $1,000 and to the maximum of $12,500.

Funds are commonly provided to support the initiation of new projects and, in disciplines for which securing funds from other sources is particularly difficult, funds are provided to cover costs associated with continuing research projects.
