Provost’s Incentive Grants Now Available

From the Provost
Applications are now being accepted for Provost’s Incentive Grants for academic year 2008–2009. Awards of up to $1,500 are available to tenured and tenure-track faculty members to assist with travel, purchase of materials, conference fees, and other support for scholarly, research, and creative activities.

A selection committee of representatives from the four schools will review all proposals based on the criteria of benefit to the faculty member’s professional development, teaching, and service to the academic department.

Applications must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. Monday, March 9. Grants will be allocated later this year, but consistent with past guidelines, research and creative activities should be conducted between March 15, 2009, and March 15, 2010.

Selection criteria and application instructions are available online or from the Academic and Student Affairs Office, Cleveland Hall 519. Please contact Janet Ramsey, 878-4554, with questions.
