Research Resources

A1 Program

The A-1 program works with investigators who have a received either: 1) a score (but not funding) on an NIH grant proposal or 2) reviews encouraging resubmission by another funding agency.  In those instances, we will identify one or two appropriate external reviewers (successfully funded investigators with that agency or sponsor) to review their resubmission draft (their A-1 in the case of NIH) before it is resubmitted.  

Faculty Travel Support

Available to full time tenured or tenure-track faculty who are presenting papers, posters, or who are otherwise serving as presenters, panelists, performers, or exhibitors at professional conferences that are national or international in scope.

Research Methodology Services

The RMS will provide methods and analysis consulting to faculty who are developing proposals for external funding. The pre-proposal consulting is available at no cost.

Research and Artistry

Research and Artistry is an annual internal grant program intended to support faculty research, scholarship, and creative activities.  Applications are due in the fall and awards are made in the spring.  The process is competitive and all applications are externally reviewed.
