Successful applicants who are awarded a FY18 Summer Grant for Research, Creativity or Grants Activity must have the permission of the Dean to teach a course in Summer 2018. Only complete proposals will be reviewed. Additional information may be attached, but all materials must be submitted by the deadline.

Applicants may apply for a grant in any of three categories:

Grant Application Development

If funded, project summary reports are due to the appropriate Dean and the Office of Scholarship and Sponsored Projects no later than October 1. Failure to do so will impact future eligibility for internal grants.
