The Office of the Provost, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer and the Office of Academic Affairs are now accepting applications for Faculty Research Grants for the 2015-16 academic year. The purpose of the Faculty Research Grant program is to encourage and promote faculty research and professional development. Grant applications are invited for scholarly research, academic projects, artistic performances, exhibitions and studies in any discipline.

The awards, totaling $110,000, will fund faculty research and professional development activities which will advance academic excellence for the individual faculty members and for Webster University. Projects may include, but are not limited to, disciplinary-based research, research for teaching and learning, scholarly publications, exhibitions, and artistic performances.

“We know that a culture of robust faculty scholarship and creative activity is essential to Webster’s success as we move into our second century,” said Julian Schuster, provost, senior vice president and chief operating officer. “Last year’s projects represented the breadth and depth of our faculty’s expertise, and I look forward to receiving strong proposals this year. Continued investment of resources in our faculty, including new hires in key disciplines and support for student research as well as increased funding for research and creative activity, will be an important driver of our strategic plan goal to deliver academic excellence.”

The deadline for applications is Monday, Nov. 3.  For more information, view the full 2015-16 Faculty Research Grant call for proposals.
