2015 Faculty Research Awards — Call for applications

The Vice President for Research & Innovation invites faculty from all academic disciplines to apply for 2015 Faculty Research Awards.

The Faculty Research Awards program provides faculty with support for research expenses including travel, summer stipend, equipment, supplies, contractual services, shared facility use, and graduate or undergraduate student research assistance.

The Faculty Research Awards Committee, composed of faculty designated by the University Senate, will evaluate proposals on the basis of their intellectual or artistic merit and make recommendations to the Vice President for Research & Innovation. 

Faculty Research Awards are eligible for funding up to $5,500.  Around twenty awards are usually made to faculty across the University.   

This year’s deadline for receipt of proposals is 5:00 PM December 1, 2014.   

Guidelines and the application form are available online on the Research Development Services website.   

An information session on the Faculty Research Awards will be held on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, from 12:00 – 1:00 in the Metolius River Room of the Erb Memorial Union.  This session will provide an opportunity for prospective applicants to ask questions about eligibility, proposal requirements, award conditions or any other aspects of the Faculty Research Award program. 

Questions should be directed to Research Development Services, rds@uoregon.edu.
