Faculty Research Support Grants (FRSG)

Faculty Research Support Grant

The Office of the Provost provides competitive internal research grants to support faculty research, scholarship, professional and creative activities. All full-time tenured or tenure earning faculty, faculty-in-residence, or faculty who are on multi-year term contracts are eligible to submit proposals. The Washington College of Law faculty are not eligible for this particular funding opportunity, unless they are part of a group of faculty from other academic units at AU.

The award is designed to provide financial support for the direct costs of research, to enable faculty to achieve greater research productivity and to apply for external research funds. Research includes creative works, as well as experimental investigations, professional projects, archival studies, and other scholarly endeavors that advance knowledge in the applicant's discipline, field, or profession or that contribute to creative projects that enhance the arts or humanities.
