Submit Summer Research Grant Form

Applications are due by the first Friday of the Spring Semester. This year's deadline is January 19, 2024.

The Summer Research Grant Program at the CELSJE offers a $4,000 stipend to SOE faculty members to conduct research that can lead to a funded project from external grant or sponsored program. Two awards are made each year. Grants are recommended by a review committee and approved by the Center’s Director and SOE Dean. One should not assume the committee members to have specialized knowledge in the applicant’s particular discipline. Therefore, proposals are evaluated based on their clarity and cogency as presented in a sophisticated but not highly technical fashion. 

Faculty who are interested in applying for The Summer Research Grant Program at the CELSJE should follow the guideline below. The guideline highlights:1) types of fundable research, 2) conditions of eligibility, 3) teaching load, 4) how to apply, 5) Format of the proposal, and 6) evaluation criteria
