The Office of the Provost awards approximately $1 million annually in institutional grants or fellowships to faculty on the Main Campus. These grants are intended to foster artistic expression, research and innovation, and academic scholarship in the humanities, social sciences, and biophysical sciences and to promote and sustain a strong culture of teaching and collaboration. In aggregate, we offer six competitive programs and one non-competitive program, annually, with awards ranging from $300 to $45,000. Applications will be considered by members of the Internal Grant Review Committee.
