The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) has application materials available for programs that support faculty projects.
Research Enhancement Program (REP)
The REP provides up to $10,000 in seed funding to enable faculty members to compete more successfully for larger research grants from external sources for continuation of their research. All full-time tenured and tenured-track faculty members at Texas Woman’s are eligible to apply and serve as PI and co-investigators. Program guidelines and the application form are available online. Proposals are due by Thursday, Oct. 21.
Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program
This program supports TWU faculty projects in areas that ordinarily have very limited opportunity to receive external grant funding yet have the potential to enhance both scholarship and 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. Complete guidelines and the application form for the Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program are available online. Proposals are due by Thursday, Oct. 21.
Budget assistance and proposal preparation for the Research Enhancement Program and the Creative Arts and Humanities Grants Program are 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. Email CRDA@twu.edu for assistance. 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.
TARGET (Equipment) Program
The TARGET Program provides a mechanism for researchers at TWU to obtain research equipment – ideally for shared use – or for TWU faculty to obtain equipment to enhance the scholarship of teaching and learning in the classroom or lab in face-to-face, online, or hybrid teaching environments.
Those who apply for teaching equipment must be full-time TWU faculty. Those applying for research-related equipment must be full-time TWU faculty who are tenured or in a tenure-track position. Applications will be accepted from individuals or groups of full-time faculty members at Texas Woman’s. It is strongly recommended that applicants work with and through their deans to obtain prior approval for their submissions. Proposals that promote faculty collaboration are especially encouraged.
Proposals must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Oct. 22. Incomplete proposals and proposals that do not follow the guidelines will not be considered for funding.
