Internal Funding for Faculty

NEW FOR 2014-2015 ACADEMIC YEAR!

At the beginning of the 2014-2015 academic year, The School of Graduate Studies and Research made revisions to the internal FDRC faculty awards and deadlines. The former “Seed” “SOAR” and “GAP” grants have been streamlined into the Faculty Research and Creative Activities Award and are now funded up to $3,000 (instead of $2,000). Other revisions have been made. Faculty Research Appointments have been expanded to include Graduate program development.

Faculty Travel Award

Funding is available for faculty who are presenting research or creative work. Faculty may receive up to $300 in matching funds from the Graduate School once per fiscal year. The primary funding required for our match may come from anywhere on campus (e.g., provost, college dean, department, etc.). Faculty who are co-presenting the same research or creative work at the same venue with another CWU faculty member(s) must split the award equally between all co-presenters who apply for funding.

To request funding from the Graduate School, please email Diane Houser with the following information:

• the particulars of the trip (conference name; date; location; title or description of work being presented; list of CWU faculty co-presenters, if applicable)
• a statement specifying from where the primary on-campus funding is coming
• an attachment of some form of  proof of presentation (usually the acceptance email or copy of the agenda showing name and date/time of presentation)

Please do not send links to websites for programs or agendas; attach in pdf format only that portion of the agenda showing the applicant’s presentation information and the cover page showing the conference/venue details. Once Diane has received this information she will reply by email with a commitment of funds and further instructions for preparation of the Travel Authorization Form and/or Travel Expense Report.
