Each year, the Research Office invites faculty to submit proposals for the annual program of the General University Research (GUR) fund. 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 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.
Prospective applicants for a GUR grant are encouraged to attend the workshop “How to Prepare a GUR Proposal” on Wednesday, Oct. 17. Details and registration will be announced in the near future.
