Deadline: First Tuesday in February. Grants start July 1
The Faculty Research Grant (FRG) for faculty in the arts and humanities supports and encourages the development of strong programs of research and creative scholarship by both junior and senior faculty in the humanities and arts. The Faculty Research Grant is funded by the Office of the Vice President for Research through the University of Georgia Research Foundation.
Grants are considered “seed money” for research, in that they should lead to the growth and development of continuing research programs. They are not a source of continuing support for an ongoing program, nor should they be viewed as an alternative source of funds for programs already developed to a level that normally would justify support from external agencies. Neither should they provide “matching” funds, where such funds are required as part of an external proposal, nor travel funds to attend professional meetings. Support for these items is provided by the schools and colleges, or in special cases, through the Office of the Vice President for Research through separate programs.
In general, grants are expected to be in the range of approximately $3,000 to $10,000.
Faculty Research Grants will provide support for the following categories of expenditure:
This program cannot pay any salary directly to the faculty member or give additional compensation.
For application procedures and other guidelines see OVPR Internal Grants & Awards (Faculty Research Seed Grants).
