Informational workshop scheduled for provost’s grant applicants

Western Carolina University’s Office of Research Administration will accept applications from WCU tenured faculty, tenure-track faculty and staff for the Provost’s Internal Funding Support Grant through Friday, Feb. 1.

WCU offers the funding to help faculty and staff become more competitive in their pursuit of external grants.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for research projects and programs proposed by principal investigators who have not been a recipient in the past three years. Funding up to $15,000 is available if research or activity is multidisciplinary.

An informational workshop with a question-and-answer session is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 14, at 3:30 p.m. in the Dogwood Room at A.K. Hinds University Center. Application guidelines are available online. To learn more, contact Pan Riggs at pgriggs@wcu.edu or 828-227-3180.
