Divisional Research and Development Committees
The Divisional Research and Development Committees are now accepting applications for:
Social Sciences Division first round - applications are due October 30th, 2017
Natural Sciences Division first round - applications are due November 13th, 2017
In cases where a project has come up on short notice or requires early or late decisions, the divisional committees may entertain proposals at other times during the year.
Please supply all of the information requested in the guidelines. In your itemized budget, be careful to follow the scale for per diem expenses (this excel calculator is designed to help). Please note that there are two different scales, one for professional meetings and another for research or development projects.
We aware that these amounts are often not sufficient to completely cover one's expenses, but they are the amounts that we are authorized to disperse. Applications for reimbursement of per diem expenditures beyond these levels can perhaps be made to other sources.
For junior faculty or others inexperienced with assembling an R&D proposal, please do not hesitate to get in touch with any committee member if you have questions.
