Faculty Research Committee

Governing Policy: P.S. 3507

Call for Research Proposals

Projects funded by this grant should be focused on faculty research intended for publication and/or utilization by the faculty member according to the methods common within one's academic area. Areas of possible funding include: research equipment or supplies; travel with a substantial research component; salary and supplies for MUW student research assistants who are contributing to the faculty member’s research agenda; and other expenses incurred in the course of faculty research. The Faculty Research Committee invites all faculty to submit proposals for research projects to be funded during each academic year.

Award Guidelines

 The committee will not fund applications for:

  • expenses for attendance, presentation, or performance at professional meetings;
  • student work conducted without significant involvement from the faculty member;
  • research with no potential for scholarly or professional publication or utilization;
  • projects intended primarily for pedagogy or student research rather than faculty research;
  • commercial ventures;
  • research, creative activity, or other work to be submitted by the faculty member as part of a degree requirement;
  • or the salary of the faculty member.

Applications will be due on April 1 each year. Awards and amounts will be announced by May 15. Award monies must be spent by June 30 of the following year (giving awardees 13 months to spend the money). Awardees must then submit a final report at the conclusion of the project by September 30, three months following the award deadline.
