The Research and Development Committee is pleased to announce the 2017-18 series of funding opportunities.
Faculty Research Grants can be for up to $8,500 to support any combination of summer salary and research expenses; Curriculum Development grants can be for up to $3,000 to support expenses related to development of new courses or significant revisions to existing IU South Bend courses. Requests for summer salary for a Curriculum Development project must be well justified as above and beyond normal course prep work; if your curriculum change deals with distance education make sure you check out and apply for the Online Course Development grants available here. There will only be two rounds for FRG and CDG funding each year. Proposals are due at the Office of Research, Academic Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 4:00 p.m. on October 27, 2017 and March 9, 2018.
External Funding Seed Grants are available to support efforts by faculty to seek external funding for research. There is no deadline for this program.
