The Office of Research and Creative Scholarship will allocate $25,000 per year to provide Grant Wiring Grants to support our faculty in securing time to write and submit external research grant applications. These grants can be used for a course teaching release or a non-teaching stipend to faculty members during the writing and submission process for external research grants only. Funds may be distributed as a one-course contract for faculty teaching release, or as an equivalent-value supplemental contract directly to the faculty member. Funding is available for grants for which indirect costs are allowed, and the total funding support cannot exceed 25% of the total expected indirect costs to be generated by the grant. Indirect costs from funded grants will replenish the fund, which will be made available to new applicants in succeeding years.
Andrews University's regular teaching faculty are eligible to apply at any time during the academic year. Research faculty (Research Professor or Senior Research Professor) involved in collaborative grants with junior faculty members are also eligible.
Faculty who are interested in applying should:
Funding will be determined by the Office of Research grant writing team, with priority given to grant applications that:
Funding per faculty member will be for a single course teaching release contract, or an equivalent supplemental contract directly to the faculty member for one semester. For a multi-faculty member collaborative grant application, support may be requested for up to two co-investigators. Funding would be available for only one semester per grant application. However, for complicated grants requiring more than 6 months of preparation time, the funds may be given for more than one consecutive semester.
