Each year the Research Office invites faculty to submit proposals for the annual program of the General University Research (GUR) fund – see this page for this years funding information. The GUR program provides assistance to full-time faculty for individual research and professional development through GUR grants. These merit-based grants are administered by the Sr. Vice Provost for Research, who is advised by the Research Committee of the Faculty Senate. The Research Committee recommends allocation of the funds available for the year, evaluates applications, and recommends those to be supported. GUR grants are awarded primarily in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Proposals involving interdisciplinary research are especially encouraged.
