The Faculty Research Committee is currently accepting grant applications for the fall 2022 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 board-appointed faculty (that is, tenured and 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.

Changes to the grant submission process this year include:

  • Applications should be e-mailed to [email protected]
  • Only electronic application submissions will be reviewed.
  • Proposals are due on December 9, 2022 by 4 PM. (Submissions must have an e-mail time stamp of 4:00 pm or earlier by December 10 to be considered)
