The UEI Faculty Grants Program sponsored by University Enterprises, Inc. (UEI) and the Academic Affairs Office of Research Affairs aids faculty research and scholarly development efforts toward tenure and/or promotion. The program has been offered to all tenured and tenure-track faculty, with initial preference given to requests from Assistant or Associate Professors and those presenting at academic conferences.
Funding has been for, but not limited to, travel to present at professional conferences; research support or research development expenses; student research assistance; collection of critical primary or pilot data and/or research-related activity leading to a grant proposal submission for external funding; article, manuscript or performance development; other forms of faculty professional development. Funds have not been used as compensation for faculty.
All applications to date were received by a committee of faculty appointed by the UEI Board and administrators from the Office of Research Affairs. Reviews ensure that requests comply with the program goal of supporting faculty professional development through scholarship and creative activity.
One hundred twenty-eight faculty members were awarded more than $110,000 for 2014. Typical awards averaged $1,000 with a maximum of $1,500 per person. The number of awards were dependent upon the availability of funds for each application cycle. While we wish the awards could have been larger, it is our hope that they will augment other departmental and college support for activities that faculty consider important to their research and scholarly activity.
More information on the program and next process will be posted in fall 2014.
