University-Funded Scholarship Grants

The University-Funded Scholarship grant program provides support for faculty to engage in research, scholarship, and creative activities. UFS grants are competitively awarded based on the review and recommendations of the University Research Committee (URC).

Mini Grants (Fall Competition): Awards of up to $2,000 will be made to support faculty scholarly and creative activities where resource needs are modest and in areas where opportunities for external funding are limited. 

Major Project Awards (Spring Competition): Awards of up to $8,000 will be made as seed grants for the purpose of obtaining significant external funding. Applicants must identify a targeted external funding agency in their application and must agree to submit a proposal to the agency within one year of project completion.
