Scholarship Facilitation Fund Fall 2018

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce the recipients of the Fall 2018 Scholarship Facilitation Fund (SFF) Awards. Funding support totaling $52,791.77 will be granted to 36 exciting faculty projects. An additional $7,950.00 in matching funds will be granted to support a number of research symposia / colloquia.

The SFF program offers crucial support to faculty research, scholarly activities, creative works, and interdisciplinary initiatives. These competitive awards provide up to $2000 to assist faculty in the initiation, completion, or advancement of these projects.

Additional information about the program, including the guidelines and application form, are available on the OVPR website. The deadline for the Spring 2019 awards is December 1, 2018.
