Faculty and Academic Staff Development

Faculty Research


  • Any grant request shall not exceed but is welcome up to $3000. Should the entire project cost in excess of $3000, the proposal must clearly indicate which portion of the project the grant will support.
  • Proposal requests may include funds to cover supplies and equipment connected to the project, conference travel, production/publications costs, student assistant funds, and faculty salaries. (Note: in the past, proposals which ask mainly for faculty salaries have not fared well.)
  • If salary is requested, fringe benefits and taxes will be deducted from the dispersed amount.
  • Any proposed research or grant project that involves human or animal subjects must be reviewed and certified by either the "Human Subjects Review Board" or the "Animal Care Committee" prior to the collection of data.
  • A faculty member may submit only one proposal for consideration in any year.
  • Faculty receiving a grant must present the results of their projects, either through a poster displayed during UWRF's Research and Scholarly Activity Day or a final report submitted to the Provost & Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The poster or report must be presented the following academic year.
  • Proposals that fall into a category of funding for which other resources are readily available (e.g., undergraduate teaching improvement or lab modernization) will not be given funding priority.
  • Proposals are welcome from all colleges and disciplines covering any area of research or professional endeavor, including research about teaching or pedagogical methods
  • Proposals to cover research costs associated with completion of an advanced or terminal degree will not be considered.
  • Priority will be given to those who have not recently received funding and to those who provided evidence of accomplishment from previous internal grant funding.  Examples of accomplishments include presentations, publications, mentoring of students, etc.


  • Please remember that your audience consists of your colleagues from other departments; they may not understand the jargon of your field. Consequently, you should write as if you are addressing educated laypersons from a field other than your own.
  • Complete the application as instructed. Listed in the application is further detailed information.
