| April 30, 2013

The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce that 22 Faculty Research Grants have been awarded for 2013.

The awards, totaling $100,000, will fund faculty research and professional development activities which will advance academic excellence for the individual faculty members and for Webster University. Last year, 19 grants totaling $90,000 were awarded.

“The quality and quantity of faculty scholarship and creative activity is commendable,” said Provost and Senior Vice President Julian Schuster. “This activity increases Webster’s visibility and reputation, creates a culture which supports active research agendas, and – importantly – impacts our students in a variety of ways, including opportunities to collaborate with faculty on research.”
