Scholarly Activity Fund

The Scholarly Activity Fund is broadly intended to support a wide range of faculty scholarly and research interests. However, awards from this fund are expected to align with one or more of the following top priorities:

  • Projects led by probationary, tenure-track faculty—especially those without access to start-up funds;
  • Projects with the potential for generating revenue (via grants or contracts) to replenish each School’s Scholarly Activity Fund;
  •  Projects that involve multi-faculty collaboration across departments or schools;
  • Projects that involve undergraduate research.

Scholarly Activity Fund investments in faculty research and scholarly activity will (generally speaking) be approved at the level of the deans. Faculty within schools should apply for these funds directly to the dean after securing the endorsement of their department chair. Faculty not housed within one of the three schools may appeal directly to the Provost for Scholarly Activity Funds. For more information, see the Scholarly Activity Fund and application below.
