Internal Grants

Provost's Teacher Scholar Program

This competitive grant program assists tenured and tenure-track faculty at the levels of Assistant and Associate Professor in their development as strong teacher-scholars. The program provides summer stipends in two consecutive summers to faculty members who show the potential to develop into exceptional teacher-scholars. Selected faculty develop a Career Development Plan that will enhance their ability to produce scholarly works such as books, journal articles, and proposals for external funding.

Kellogg Legacy Endowment

The Kellogg Legacy Project Endowment is a multi-million dollar investment in the future of our students, our state, and our nation. This remarkable gift from one of the nation's leading foundations supporting education strengthens student success programs, improves support for faculty teaching and scholarly innovation, and expands relations with the community. Proceeds from the endowment are invested by the President in projects and activities that strengthen the university and advance its major goals, particularly the success of our disadvantaged or underprivileged students.

Improving the Classroom Experience Program

Funded by the Student Success Fee, there are two types of ICE grants available: 

  • Classroom & Lab Equipment Grants:   Funds are available to significantly update classroom equipment and to modernize specialized equipment used in laboratories and classrooms.  
  • Instructional Innovation Grants:  Funds are available to develop or implement innovative approaches to instruction.  

At this time, no website exists for these grants.  Please watch for announcement emails.

Research, Scholarship, & Creative Activities Grants

The RSCA grants are small grants (up to $5000) to support research, scholarship, and creative activities.  The grants are funded by the President’s Office and administered by the Office of Research. Proposals are reviewed by the Council for Graduate and Faculty Scholarship (Research Council), an elected committee consisting of a representative from each College. 

Academic Writing Grants

In some years, the Faculty Center is able to offer Academic Writing Grants.  These small grants support faculty scholarly writing projects that are relatively close to completion but would benefit from resources such as close editing, proof-reading, or other final-stage development. Any serious, scholarly writing project is eligible, including but not limited to articles for peer review, books or book proposals, grant proposals, creative works, and project proposals.

In 2013-2014, we do not have Academic Writing Grants, but we hope to have them in 2014-2015.  Please watch for announcement emails.

Faculty Mini-Grants

In some years, the Faculty Center is able to offer Faculty Mini-Grants.  These small (~$1000) grants support faculty activities in almost any capacity, but faculty are especially encouraged to consider the teacher scholar model when planning mini-grant proposals. In 2014, proposals were due February 10.  Please watch for announcement emails for future Mini-grant programs.
