Research - SoHE Internal Funding Opportunities

Research funding is available to SoHE faculty through two competitive awards processes: Course release incentive funding and Centers discretionary research incentive funding.

SoHE Funding Opportunities

In 2019, Dean Shim launched the SoHE Research & Grant Investment Initiative. This involved allocating discretionary funds and program-specific funds to SoHE Research Leads and the Associate Dean for Research in support of SoHE Strategic Goal #1: Increase productivity in research, scholarship and sponsored programs and support and Strategic Goal #2: Collaborate beyond SoHE to build strategic partnerships to solve real-world problems. 

These opportunities are handled as internal competitions and are coordinated by the Associate Dean for Research or the respective Center of Excellence. Each opportunity outlines the process for submitting an application and the eligibility requirements. These proposals are not submitted via WISPER.

SoHE Course Release Incentive Applications - Due August 15 and March 1 each year

In support of advancing SoHE’s productivity and impact in research, scholarship, and grants, Dean Shim has allocated significant resources to fund faculty members’ course releases. The releases are intended to create time for developing promising external funding proposals.

The application focuses on the role the course release will play in the researcher’s overall scholarship and grant process. The course releases are intended for investigators who have identified a significant federal grant opportunity. The aim of the release is to carve out time for the investigator to advance or complete the grant proposal. The applicant will be more competitive if they have support from and/or connection with a SoHE research center.

The Associate Dean for Research sends an email call for proposals to the SoHE community a few weeks before the deadline each spring and fall.

Centers Discretionary Research Funding - Due fall semester each year

Funds for this initiative are to be used specifically to increase extramural grants and sponsored projects that would lead to greater impact in solving real-world problems. Each year, SoHE Research Leads release a call for proposals outlining the research priorities for that funding cycle and how to apply for the funding. Refer to each Centers' funding opportunity below for Center-specific details.
