Grant applications are due Thursday, November 16 by 5:00pm.
Grant requests may be for any type of project or program with a focus on teaching, faculty development or research. Examples include, but are not limited to equipment, research needs, assistance with publications, special events, special program funds, and direct student impact (e.g. conference fees)
Grant recipients can reapply in the next round if their grant is not funded.
Funding does not go directly to the faculty recipient and it is not considered part of salary or stipend. Deposits are to be made to the recipient’s department’s operating budget. If you are including any type of salary/stipend in your budget that will be paid to an ESU employee, you need to include the cost of the employer’s benefits. The calculator is available by fiscal year at X:\BUDGET.
There are no administrative fees deducted from the grants.
For specific criteria refer to the application form.
- Avoid using jargon in proposals.
- If the grant is for needed equipment, the equipment purchased with the grant money belongs to the department, not the faculty member.
- Grant requests for projects having a direct student impact (i.e. registration fees for students attending conferences, etc.) are encouraged.
If a grant is received, a one-page follow-up report is required, describing the outcome of the use of the funds.
