Internal Grants

Faculty Summer Research Program (FSRG)

The Faculty Summer Research Grant (FSRG) program is a highly competitive program administered by the LAS College Research Committee. The FSRG provides salary stipends and funding for additional expenses to tenure-line faculty for projects undertaken in the summer following submission of the application. A complete application includes a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s department chair or program director, due one week following the application deadline. Faculty are expected to send in a brief report of their research accomplishments at the end of summer. Previous FSRG recipients are identified here.

The window for 2021 FSRG applications is open, with a firm deadline of October 13, 2020.

Applicants are encouraged to review the Guidelines, available below, in their entirety well before the deadline and to alert their chair or director of their intention to apply well before submission. Please note: this year, FSRG applications will be processed via Interfolio. Faculty members whose experience with Interfolio is limited are very strongly encouraged to review the submission process in advance. The link to apply for the grant should be accessible in each eligible faculty member’s Task List on their Interfolio home page, accessible from the link below.

Problems accessing the application module in Interfolio may be directed to Erica Godfrey, Program Coordinator in the LAS Dean’s Office. For assistance in preparing the FSRG proposal, please visit the LAS Faculty Scholarship Collaborative.
