Dean's Research Grant

The Dean of Seaver College offers grants ranging in amounts up to approximately $1,500. These grants will be awarded to tenure or tenure-track faculty to fund needs directly related to research activity. This money may be applied to such research needs as equipment and/or supplies, statistical consulting, travel to libraries and/or collections, etc. 

Proposals (2-3 pages) providing a brief description of the research project or activity, a budget clearly specifying how the funds will be used to support the project and how it will advance the faculty member's research, as well as a current C.V. should be submitted via the Internal Research Programs - Application Form by the deadline of October 30, 2024, to be considered for the priority deadline. However, ongoing submissions are allowable and are reviewed monthly. Note: Faculty are limited to one submission each fiscal year, and applications after the priority deadline will be reviewed monthly and must be submitted by April 15 to be considered.

Decisions will be made and notification letters sent out by January. Upon receiving an award letter, faculty may begin using the grant towards their research endeavors. Any funds that are awarded must be used by July 15th of that same fiscal year. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Sevana Hanneyan in the Office of Research, Grants, and Foundation Relations. Funded projects will be expected to complete the Internal Research Report Form by August 15, 2025.
