UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Internal grants available – Jan. 12 deadline

The UNCG Office of Research and Economic Development is once more accepting applications for new faculty research grants and regular faculty research grants.

Faculty can apply for these internal grants by submitting an application with supporting budget forms by January 12, 2015, at 5 p.m.. The awards funding period is March 2015 – June 2016.

Faculty may apply for up to $5,000 individually. Collaborative projects submitted by two or more UNCG faculty are eligible for up to $10,000.

New faculty internal grants are awarded to full-time, tenure-track faculty below the rank of professor, clinical faculty, research faculty, and academic professional faculty in the first three years of appointment. Regular faculty research grants are are awarded to full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty, clinical faculty, research faculty, and academic professional faculty.

All grants will be evaluated on merit. However, once reviewers have determined which proposals are fundable, priority for funding is given to faculty who have not received an internal grant for the last five years.

In a departure from previous policies, the new internal grants may be used for faculty salary provided UNCG guidelines regarding buyouts and add pays are met.
