This program provides faculty with up to $1,000 to support their research, scholarly, and creative work. Funds may be used for supplies, equipment, research-related travel, performances, exhibitions, displays and similar creative activities, as well as other necessary expenses. Funds may not be used to pay salaries (including student salaries) or for conference attendance or to present results at other professional venues or for the development of instructional materials, curricula, general purpose (departmental) equipment, or dissertations. Funds may only be used for expenses incurred during the award period (pre-award spending is not supported). The term of the grant is up to one-year, and any unexpended funds remaining at the end of the grant period will be returned to the program. Recipients can hold no more than one Small Grant at a time. This program is open to all faculty (tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track) as well as exempt staff and other university employees for whom research or creative work is expected as a condition of employment.
