Faculty Grants Program (FGP)
FY2014 Faculty Grant Awards are Now In!
FGP (formerly Intramural Grants Program) seeks to support
the research, creative endeavors, and other scholarly activity of Northern
Arizona University faculty.
In particular, the FGP supports activity that originates
from the faculty member's own professional goals and interests within their
discipline, department or college mission, and priorities. Apply for the Faculty Grants Program.
The FGP serves as a catalyst for obtaining extramural
support and seeks to support:
- new faculty
- faculty doing work in disciplines where
extramural support is not regularly available
- established faculty who are changing the scope
or direction of their work
The FGP does not fund:
- graduate student assistantships
- student research projects, theses, or
- faculty dissertation work
Requests to support activities that will take place during
sabbatical leave, or that will take place the summer before or after a sabbatical
leave, are discouraged.
Important Changes to the FY2014 FGP
- FGP applications can request up to $15,000.
- Application Window: FGP Applications will be accepted November 1 through 5:00PM Tuesday, November 13, 2012.
- Scholarly and Creative proposal narratives now follow a format that reflects the nature of these types of projects.
- Up to $7,500 or the cost equivalent of 1.5 summer months' effort (whichever is less), may be included in the FGP budget for each faculty member. If an application includes summer salary for the PI and a Co-investigator, up to $15K can be requested for summer salary. However, the amount of summer salary support requested for any faculty member cannot exceed 1.5 months' effort and must reflect the actual amount of effort necessary to carry out the project. Applicants are strongly encouraged to provide detailed justifications for all summer salary requests.
- All inquiries, questions or comments regarding the Faculty Grants Program should be directed to Catherine Propper, Director for Research Capacity Development, Office of the Vice President for Research, 928.523.1374 (or via e-mail, Catherine.firstname.lastname@example.org).
