2015-2016 Faculty Research Funding
In FY15-16 the Arts & Sciences Committee on Faculty Research (ASCFR) will be funding BOTH travel support AND a competitive internal research grant program. This site will be updated as more details of the research grant competition become available. Some money will also be made available to support conferences hosted by Duke University.
There are restrictions on requests for travel support and internal research grants. With respect to travel support, if a faculty member has a research or startup account s/he should use that account for scholarly/research travel. Regular-rank, non-regular rank and Emeritius faculty (but not postdocs) are eligible to receive travel funding. Trips are limited to no more than two per fiscal year (July 1- June 30), with funding totaling not more than $1,000 for the combined trips. There is no financial distinction between foreign or domestic travel; awards are limited to $1,000. Also, travel to an event where the faculty member is only chairing a session will not be funded. Please see page two of the meeting/travel support form for more details.
Regular-rank and non-regular rank a faculty are eligible to apply for internal research grants. However, Emeritus faculty and post-docs are NOT eligible to apply for these grants.
