The University is committed to fostering an environment to promote increased research and extramural funding to support that research, either through traditional research grants and contracts or through entrepreneurial activities that include industry sponsored research. Accordingly, the Office of Research and Graduate Studies is pleased to announce that proposals are now being accepted for the Faculty Innovative Research in Science and Technology (FIRST) program for academic year 2018-2019. A maximum of $350,000 will be available for research funding beginning July 1, 2018.
For more information and the full Request for Proposal (RFP) and Application visit the Office of Research & Graduate Research department page on ERNIE.
The Faculty Research Development Program (FRDP) supports faculty in order to stimulate new research and research collaborations between campuses, and to disseminate research findings. The program can support research‐related activities that contribute to faculty and that raise the research reputation of the university. Examples include specialized research hardware or software, research publication costs, and research-related travel to national and regional meetings. The program prioritizes support for junior faculty to develop their research programs, but it also provides supplemental funding to other faculty members to help initiate or support research that otherwise cannot be completely funded through departments and colleges. A maximum of $150,000 will be available beginning July 1, 2018.

The University Research Council (URC) is an advisory body to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, comprising faculty researchers from every college and every campus. They also perform important functions associated with campus research, such as the reviews of internal proposals submitted to the FIRST program.
