Faculty Research Support Programs

  • The School of Graduate Studies and Research supports research-related costs through the following:

    Faculty Publication

    Publication costs for articles in scholarly journals paying no royalty or fee to the author are funded by the School of Graduate Studies and Research to a limit of $500. These costs include article submission fees, reasonable photographic reproduction fees, and page charges. See the link below to apply for this funding.

    Incidental Research

    Large research projects are funded externally. Preliminary studies leading to external grant proposals are supported internally. The limit is generally $300 per project. See the link below to apply for this funding.

    Prior application is required. See instructions and application for faculty publication and incidental research funding.

    Faculty Travel in Pursuit of External Funding

    Establishing direct contact with program officers is a detail that faculty members often overlook when applying for grants. The School of Graduate Studies and Research provides modest support for appropriate travel to federal and state agencies and private foundations. Requests are made to the assistant dean for Research.

    Hard Match Fund

    Many external funding agencies require that universities provide matching funds to carry out grant-funded projects. In order to meet this need and be competitive, the School of Graduate Studies and Research has reserved a major portion of its research incentive resources to invest in faculty grant applications. Approximately $165,000 is available annually for non-equipment matches. Requests must be made to the dean of the School of Graduate Studies and Research during the process of applying for external funding.
