EMU Research

James H. Brickley Endowment for Faculty Professional Development and Innovation

New Funding Opportunity Available - Begins July 1, 2017!



Tony and Lois Evans have recently graciously donated an additional $20,000 of funding for the James H. Brickley Endowment for Faculty Professional Development and Innovation. Graduate Studies and Research will accept new proposals for funding beginning July 1, 2017.

We anticipate making 15-20 awards. 

Consideration for larger awards will be given to projects that focus on innovation, interdisciplinary teams, and/or the application of newer techniques, technologies, or programs. 

 

The purpose of the James H. Brickley Award is to facilitate faculty professional development and innovation through a broad range of activities, including but not limited to, things such as: 

 

  1. Reassigned time from teaching for scholarly, creative, and innovative endeavor
  2. Conference presentations
  3. Travel  
  4. Hiring of research assistants  
  5. Purchase of special equipment or supplies for teaching, scholarly, research, creative, or innovative activities
  6. Development of a grant proposal for external funding 
  7. Similar or related academic activities

 

Special emphasis is given to innovation, such as the application of newer techniques and technologies for creating mental health programs for immigrants, providing special workshops for parents with autistic children, or working with students, parents, teachers, and community leaders in addressing drug addiction.

 

  • Ordinarily, the awards will be kept small so that more faculty members can benefit.
  • Newer and untenured faculty members are encouraged especially to apply to this program.
  • All applicants are encouraged also to seek matching funds from other internal and external sources.

Application Process 

Applicants must submit their applications electronically, logging in with your EMU credential. *Application portal will be posted no later than 30 days prior to deadline* 

 

 

Timeline:

  • Submission of proposal July 1, 2017 - October 2, 2017 by 5p.m. EST
  • Written award decision notification by October 16, 2017
  • We encourage revision/resubmission of unfunded proposals from winter 2017
