The University Research Council, a committee of faculty and administrators, advises the Vice President for Research on faculty awards which are made as the result of peer review of requests submitted by the faculty for funding of research and other scholarly and creative activities. The Council also provides subvention for scholarly publications. The Council’s programs are financed using State funds. All awards are made on a basis of merit, although priority is given to new faculty members. The Council makes use of faculty consultants to broaden its expertise and assist in the peer review process.
Proposals are due by 5 P.M. on Friday, March 29, 2013. Hard copy and late applications will not be accepted. All proposals should be submitted to the Office of the Vice President for Research through the electronic submission website.
