Grant program application materials available

Application materials are available for the 2021-2022 Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program and the Research Enhancement Program (REP) spring competition. Proposals for both programs are due by Tuesday, April 20.

The Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program supports TWU faculty projects in areas that ordinarily have very limited opportunity to receive external grant funding, yet have the potential to enhance scholarship and enhance TWU’s profile nationally and internationally. Up to $5,000 may be requested to support these projects, and all full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty may apply. Budget assistance and proposal preparation is available through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs by contacting Research and Sponsored Programs. To receive assistance from the Center for Research Design and Analysis (CRDA), email CRDA@twu.edu . In order to review the research design before the deadline, the CRDA must receive the draft of the narrative at least two weeks prior to the deadline.

Visit the Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program web page for guidelines and application forms.

The Research Enhancement Program (REP) provides up to $10,000 in seed funding so that faculty members will be able to compete more successfully for larger research grants from external sources to continue their research. The REP provides support for all types of faculty research. All full-time tenured faculty and tenure-track faculty members at TWU are eligible to apply and serve as PI and co-investigators. Tenured faculty will be evaluated separately from tenure-track faculty who are not yet tenured (thus considered a "new investigator") with funds being designated separately for each group.

Budget assistance and proposal preparation is available through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. The Center for Research Design and Analysis (CRDA) can work with faculty on research design and/or statistics; for assistance email CRDA@twu.edu . In order to review the research design before the deadline, the CRDA must receive the draft of the narrative at least two weeks prior to the deadline.

Program guidelines and application forms are available on the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs website.
