Retired Faculty Research Grants

The Retired Faculty Research Grants program supports new and ongoing research costs for retired faculty who were formerly full-time members of the faculty of Georgetown University.

PURPOSES: Funds may be used for research materials, travel and fees associated with the presentation of research results at professional conferences, costs for research assistance, and subventions for scholarly manuscripts.
