This is the annual call for USA Faculty Development Council (USAFDC) proposals. The purpose of the USADFC grant is to initiate and strengthen research programs and to increase faculty/program competitiveness for extramural grants. Additionally, USADFC supports worthy projects for which external funding is not generally available. Please refer to the "General Guidelines for USAFDC Grant Applications" for additional information on what is acceptable, as well as inappropriate under USADFC funding. The application can be downloaded by clicking here. The General Guidelines for preparing the proposal are available here.
The deadline for receiving complete application packages in the Graduate School Office, AD 300, is Monday, January 28, 2013. Applications requiring IRB review are accepted pending approval. Refer to the general guidelines for USAFDC grant applications for complete details. It is anticipated that awards will be announced in late March. Award recipients are expected to present outcomes of USAFDC projects at a future Annual Research Forum.
Please contact the graduate school office (6-6310) if you have any questions.
