To describe the CoHS Seed Grant Program for New Faculty Research, the steps necessary for obtaining funding for such projects, and the expectations/procedures for reporting results.
This OP will be reviewed by the CoHS Research Committee with recommendations for revision presented to the Dean of the CoHS.
The primary goal of this program is to provide faculty members with funds for pilot projects that have strong potential to acquire future external funding.
Deadlines for applications and maximum amounts of each award will be announced by the Associate Dean for Research as they are contingent on the availability of funding. Grant funds may be used toward the purchase of equipment which is directly related to the research project, travel for the purpose of data collection and meetings with potential sponsors, and for salary support of research assistants but not faculty. To initiate the process, the faculty member must submit a proposal in the format described below to the Associate Dean for Research.
Faculty who receive awards will receive an award letter which will specify the award amount, the final date by which all funds must be spent, the account number which has been set up for the project funds, and dates for submitting Interim and Final Reports.
