Internal Grant Programs

The Internal Grants Program is under review. Details about the revised program will be publicized as soon as they are available.

Purpose of the Internal Grant Programs 

To establish and enhance the credibility of researchers:

  • provide seed funding to generate initial data for analysis
  • encourage dissemination through conferences, workshops, scholarly and creative publications

To support research that might not be funded otherwise:

  • research topics that "fall between the cracks"
  • innovative, cutting-edge research that might be considered too risky by discipline-based peer review committees
