Provost's Collaborative Research Grants

The Provost’s Collaborative Research Grants are intended to help faculty with research and scholarly production.


Faculty who apply for this grant may receive up to $5,000.  Collaboration between two or more researchers is required to be considered with preference for anyone who applies for this grant. Recipients of the grants will be notified in mid-November, and will have until June 30, to use the awarded funds. Acknowledgement of funding on any published documentation related to the research and its findings will be required. 


Applicants can be either junior or senior faculty actively pursuing a research agenda.

Collaboration includes:

  • New study collaborations across colleges
  • Strong interdisciplinary teams
  • Junior faculty with strong senior faculty mentoring

Faculty may choose to collaborate with graduate/undergraduate students on a research project, but it must be the faculty member who applies for the grant and directs the project.
