Faculty Research Committee

Faculty Research Grant Due Dates

The Faculty Research Committee is currently accepting additional grant applications for the Fall 2023 funding cycle.

The Faculty Research Grant Program has been established by the university to provide support for board-appointed faculty interested in engaging in research. All Ferris State faculty (that is, tenured, tenure track, and non-tenure track faculty) are eligible to apply. It is expected that faculty who are granted support through the Faculty Research Grant Program will successfully complete a noteworthy project or progress to a sufficient extent so as to qualify for continuing long-term support from an outside source.  Please note that these grants are intended to act as a catalyst for faculty involvement in research activity and are not for development of classroom material. We particularly encourage application from faculty members that have not yet participated in this program, and those that plan to involve Ferris students in their projects

Grant applications must be sent to the Academic Senate office or emailed to [email protected] by the cycle due date.

Changes to the grant submission process this year include:

  • The Faculty Research Committee will now accept applications from non-tenure track faculty.
  • Applications should be e-mailed to [email protected].
  • Please copy the Chair of the Faculty Research Committee ([email protected]) when submitting the application.
  • Only electronic application submissions will be reviewed.
  • Proposals are due on December 8,  2023 by 4 p.m. (Submissions must have an e-mail time stamp of 4:00 p.m. or earlier by December 8 to be considered)
