Faculty-led Research Grant

Apply to the opportunity by visiting

This grant will provide faculty the opportunity to mentor undergraduate students in effective research strategies while continuing to pursue their own line of research.  Funds are available for the following:

  • student salary up to $1,000 per semester per student during the academic year and salary up to $2,500 per student during the Spring and Summer terms. Students may be hired for one semester or multiple semesters for a maximum of one year.
  • supplies up to $500 per student to conduct research that extends the faculty member’s work. However, if you are submitting a proposal for more than one semester you can request up to an additional $500 in supplies per student position with strong justification and rationale.  Supplies should be necessary to increase capacity of the existing project to include students, not fund the research project. 

Eligibility: Proposals are accepted from full-time faculty members on continuing appointment.  Endowed Professors are ineligible to apply.  Faculty who have been awarded three faculty-led grants in the last five years are ineligible unless they have applied for external funding through Sponsored Programs.

Due Date: By 4:30 pm on October 31 and March 15 yearly or next business day if the due date falls on the weekend
