Faculty Research Grants

A page within Research & Sponsored Programs

Consider public health impacts on your scholarship.
As you plan your research or creative endeavors, you may want to develop a contingency plan for project continuity (e.g., in the event of travel restrictions), or adjust the scope of your work to account for potential disruptions due to public health emergencies.

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 noon.
