The purpose of the Faculty Grants Program is to provide financial support for faculty research projects, scholarly activities, papers for publication and creative works. These funds are intended to be exclusive of curriculum development and instructional improvement grants. Funded grants should culminate in some resulting product: a publication, a paper submitted for publication, a manuscript, a model, a creation for display, an original musical composition, a play, a piece of sculpture, etc.

Funding of faculty grants will be based upon the overall completeness of the proposal, the merit and creativity of the project, the soundness of the research design or methodology, the value and relationship of the project to department and university goals and the soundness of the budget justification.
