University Enterprises, Inc. (UEI) and the Academic Affairs Office of Research Administration are pleased to announce the UEI Faculty Grants Program for 2012-2013. This program is open to all tenured and tenure-track faculty, although initial preference will be given to requests from Assistant or Associate Professors. Awards will be granted for faculty professional development activities pursued during the period December 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
At least $50,000 will be distributed, and typical awards will be between $750 and $1,000. The application deadline is November 26, 2012 and reviews will begin immediately thereafter. All funds must be expended by June 30, 2013. While we wish the awards could be larger, it is our hope that they will augment other support for activities that faculty consider important to their profession, such as travel to professional conferences, manuscript preparation, data collection, and supplies necessary for scholarship and creative activities.
Applications will be reviewed by a committee of faculty appointed to the UEI board and administrators from the Office of Research Administration. Their reviews will ensure that requests comply with the program goal of supporting faculty professional development through scholarship and creative activities. The committee has endeavored to keep the application process simple and brief, while assuring that funds will be used to enhance professional activities. The number of Faculty Grants awarded will depend on the availability of funds.
For assistance or questions, please call (916) 278-5842 or email.
