These grants are intended to provide faculty members with funds to defray the costs of bringing their scholarship to the public arena. Requests are capped at $2,000. Examples of such costs include page or indexing charges, permissions, and exhibition staging charges. These grants give preference to single author volumes over edited works. It is recommended that the faculty member determine well in advance what other sources could partner with completion grant money to support the project; these funds may include departmental funds, start-up funds, or, in the case of multi-author publications, contributions from other institutions. Normally, a request to fund the purchase of reprints as a stand-alone item will not be supported, however, a faculty member may make such a request if there is a necessity for high-resolution images which cannot otherwise be adequately reproduced. Requests for such grants will be considered on a rolling basis by the chair of the FRC and the dean of academic affairs.
Applicants should submit the online completion grant application, explaining the expenses (such as page rates for indexing, or title of article and name of journal for page charges) and providing an estimate of the costs to be incurred.
The Faculty Research Committee recognizes that these categories may not cover all eventualities. If an unanticipated research situation arises that cannot be accommodated under these categories, please contact FRC Chair Martha Risser or Associate Dean Sarah Raskin.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: None, applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
