Faculty Grants

Faculty Grants for Research and Creative Works

The purpose of these awards is to encourage research, scholarship, and the development of creative works at Eastern Washington University, and to support faculty in establishing new and innovative strands of research and creative works. Faculty Grants for Research and Creative Works exist to provide faculty with time to undertake research and creative works projects.

Funds should be requested primarily to buy time during the summer. You may also request funding for student assistance, travel or equipment; however, the total request cannot exceed $10,000.

Applications are evaluated by the Research and Scholarship Committee. The committee is chaired by Bruce Teague (Management). Members: Awlad Hossain (Engineering and Design); Sarah Jackson (MPH Program); Emily Messina (Physical Education, Health & Recreation); Bruce Teague (Management); Gustave Nollmeyer (Education); Yves Nievergelt (Mathematics); Quig Meade (Library); German Izon (Economics); Anna Tresidder (Health Services Admin); and Amanda Reedy (Social Work).  The ex-officio, non-voting convener is David May.
