The purpose of this program is to encourage innovative approaches to research, teaching, and other creative activities by IUP faculty members.

Grant awards of up to $10,000 will be made on a competitive basis determined by the degree of innovation and creativity of the proposed project.

Preferences will be given to projects that have the potential for external funding and/or national or international recognition. For further information and an application form, see the IUP Innovation Awards Guidelines (link will be activated when next year's guidelines are available).
