Faculty Scholarship Grant Program (FSGP)
This internal grant program is intended to support faculty scholarship that is aligned with the University’s mission and vision and that advances the Division of Academic Affairs’ strategic priorities. The FSGP serves as a source of major financial support for faculty who are on a trajectory that could result in external funding for their scholarship as well as for faculty whose field of scholarship may not result in external funding, but whose scholarly work is nevertheless valuable to the University and the communities it serves.
