The Office of Research & Creative Scholarship will become especially proactive in supporting faculty in identifying funding sources and preparing effective proposals for external support. Faculty that have received faculty research grants for the previous three years, or four of the previous five years, must submit a proposal for support to an external foundation. Success in receiving external funding is not required. However, good faith submission prior to the end of this period will be necessary in order to continue to receive internal funding.
The Office of Research & Creative Scholarship team will facilitate in every way possible the development of winning proposals to these external agencies. We have listed a few links to external granting sites and encourage individuals to research other sources of funding from Foundations and other external agencies.
