Call for proposals: Spring 2013 Faculty Development Awards and University Small Research Grants

By Caron Berges

The office of research and sponsored programs announces the spring 2013 call for proposals for the President's Faculty Development Awards, or FDA, and University Small Research Grants, or USRG, for faculty members — assistant professor and above — who are interested in receiving assistance in their scholarly activities and professional development.

  • FDA — President’s Faculty Development Awards program provides support to travel to international meetings, primarily at international locations; to participate in foreign exchanges — such as NEH fellowships — and to meet with program officers of potential external sponsors. All faculty members holding assistant professor level appointments or above are eligible for this award.
  • USRG — University Small Research Grants program is a seed grant program to support early research, scholarly activity and other creative efforts. 

If you seek travel support that will occur before July 1, apply in the fall competition. Fall funding must be committed before the close of the current fiscal year on June 30.

If you seek travel support that will occur after June 30, apply in the spring competition. Spring funding is allocated after the next fiscal year begins on July 1.

More details can be found at http://www.k-state.edu/research/funding/fdausrg.htm.

If you are on the Salina campus, a communication link via Skype will be set up so you don’t have to travel to join the FDA and USRG Question and Answer session on Feb. 14.
