Budget Narrative

The Duquesne University Hunkele Dreaded Disease Award is administered as a competitive grants program.  It provides money for investigators conducting biomedical research on major, life-threatening diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes that could ultimately lead to a direct cure for the disease.  All full-time, tenure-track or tenured faculty are eligible to aply; funding is $10,000.

The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, October 1, 2014.  Proposals must be prepared in accordance with the format outlined in the Hunkele Dreaded Disease guidelines (where applicable), and submitted to the Office of Research, Room 310 Administration Building, by 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1, 2014.  Please be reminded that we cannot process nor review proposals that are submitted past the deadline.

Presidential Scholarship Award

Through this annual writing award, faculty may receive up to $5,000 to complete preparation of a manuscript for publication as an article or book, or to complete a music recording.

Deadline is March 2, 2015 at 4:30pm.

Preference will be given to those scholarly works that do not directly result in remuneration, such as textbooks.

Because this project is designed as a summer writing grant, individuals will be expected to have completed all of the research required for this project prior to submission to this grant competition.

All full-time tenure track or tenured faculty are eligible to apply.
Proposals are evaluated by a review committee composed of University scholars, including previous Presidential Scholarship Award recipients.
In making the awards, the committee will give preference to those disciplines where outside research funds are generally unavailable


Faculty Development Fund

FDF awards are seed money, designed to help faculty begin their scholarly work, initiate work in a new direction, or continue a research project using the award as "bridging funds" between grants.

Preference will be given to junior faculty and to multidisciplinary projects. Additionally, funds are available for projects that support and foster the integration of computing resources in the teaching, learning, and research aspects of Duquesne. Eligible projects may be funded up to $10,000.

All full-time tenure-track or tenured faculty are eligible, regardless of the number of previous FDF awards that they have received.
