Faculty research grants

UWL provides Faculty Research Grants on a competitive, peer-reviewed basis to eligible faculty and academic staff. The term "research" is meant to denote investigative activities--scholarly efforts to advance knowledge, increase skills, and improve understanding in any academic discipline. Proposals clearly designed to improve instruction on this campus will not be considered for funding by these grants. Scholarly projects taking place domestically or internationally are eligible for funding.

Annual deadline for proposals: Grant Proposal Reports from Digital Measures are due to grants@uwlax.edu on the fourth Wednesday in October by 4:00 pm.

Requirements for Fall 2019 have been significantly revised.
