President's Advancing Grantsmanship Fund Continued for Another Year

Posted on 9/26/2011 5:34:10 PM

The School of Graduate Studies and Research is pleased to announce that President Werner has thoughtfully decided to continue the President’s Advancing Grantsmanship Fund to encourage and support faculty grantsmanship.

It is IUP’s intention that the President’s Advancing Grantsmanship Fund helps to ease the teaching and research load carried by our faculty while advancing grant successes. The fund provides a $2,500 award for tenure-track faculty members who submit a grant proposal of at least $25,000. The faculty member has the option of receiving the award as either operating dollars or as additional salary plus benefits totaling $2,500.

Faculty members will receive funding after the grant is submitted. The proposal must be submitted during the 2011–2012 academic year (beginning July 1, 2011, and ending June 30, 2012).

For further inquiry, contact Tim Mack, Dean, School of Graduate Studies and Research, at 724-357-2244 or by e-mail at tmack@iup.edu.
