Faculty Grant-in-Aid Program

The Vice President for Research & Economic Development has announced that there will be a competition for Faculty Grants-in-Aid for Spring 2018.

The Faculty Grant-in-Aid Program is funded by the Office of Research & Economic Development. Funding will be provided to committee-selected projects either as "seed money," which leads to data and other information to be used in developing larger proposals, or funds may be granted to projects which, upon completion, will represent a complete and self-contained body of new scholarship or creative work.

The Research Advisory Committee of the Faculty Senate reviews Faculty Grant-in-Aid proposals. Proposals are requested to support research, scholarship, and/or creative activity. Awards are made without regard to faculty rank.

For this series of awards, the grants will be limited to an individual maximum of $7,500. To qualify for funding from this program you must not have received a FGIA award within the last two calendar years. The competition is open to all faculty and academic professionals at the University of Wyoming. Post-doctoral associates are not eligible. Proposals which include salary for the principal investigator(s) are strongly discouraged. The roles of support personnel such as graduate students need to be explained in detail in the application. The funds may not be used to pay any costs of publication or dissemination or for travel to present the results of proposed work.

Multidisciplinary, cross disciplinary, and/or interdisciplinary proposals are encouraged, but not required, as are proposals which provide for collaboration between new members of the faculty and established individuals. Applications must be submitted through the InfoReady Review System and are due no later than 11:59 p.m. on April 23, 2018. Questions may be directed to Farrell Rapp
