Faculty Development Fund
FACULTY DEVELOPMENT FUND
DEADLINE: Tuesday, January 20, 2015
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.
The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, January 20, 2015. Proposals must be prepared in accordance with the format outlined in the guidelines which can be found below and submitted to the Office of Research, 308 Administration Building, by 4:30 pm that day. Proposals submitted after the deadline will be returned without review. I encourage you to attend one of two brief informational meetings for applicants to be held on Monday, December 15, 2014 at 10:00 am or Friday, January 9, 2015 at 2:00 pm in room 311 Administration Bldg. If you cannot attend either meeting, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Research (x6326 or x4290) with questions that may arise during the development of your proposal.
