The Grants and Research Office invites faculty to submit proposals to support research that will be carried out during summer 2011. These internal grants are designed to give teams of faculty and graduate students the time and resources they need for meaningful reflection and in-depth inquiry into a problem or issue in their field.

It is anticipated that each research team will produce a significant scholarly paper or creative work that may lead to publication or dissemination and the submission of a grant proposal to an external agency.

Successful applicants to this program receive a grant of $10,000. This grant can be used by the team for student stipends, faculty stipends, materials and supplies, travel, equipment and other types of expenses that will facilitate the proposed research.

Teams must consist of at least one faculty member and one graduate student, but competitive preference will be given to proposals that involve more than one graduate student. Teams should propose a project that can be carried out over a period of eight to 12 weeks.

Applications for Graduate Research Team Grant projects are due on Thursday, March 17.
