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, i.e., 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.
