  • encourage the pursuit of new areas of research, scholarship or artistic endeavors;
  • fund travel in support of research; or
  • encourage the development of specific professional skills within one's discipline.

Individual proposals are permitted, and this year interdisciplinary or interprofessional collaborative proposals are encouraged. Individual proposals may be awarded up to $5,000.00. Teams of two or more faculty (limit 4) can apply for a joint project.

Each PI is eligible for $5,000.00, joint projects would be eligible for funding of $10,000.00 to $20,000.00 depending on the number of PI's.
