Dec. 1 deadline for Research and Travel Grant Program

The fall deadline is fast approaching for faculty members applying to the 2010 Research and Travel Grant Program. The University Research Council will accept applications through Dec. 1, 2009.

All full-time, tenured or tenure-track faculty members are eligible to submit proposals. For faculty members up for contract renewal, awards will be contingent upon renewal. Proposals from junior faculty and proposals that may lead in the near future to external funding are encouraged.

About 40 grants have been awarded annually for the past few years. Grants will not exceed $10,000 and must be used within 12 months of award.

Proposals may also be submitted for consideration during the Spring 2010 term; the deadline is April 1. There will not be a separate call for proposals for the April 1 deadline.

Find submission forms and guidelines at the University Research Council web page. For more information, call the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, 214-768-4336.
