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.
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.
