Faculty Research Initiative Grants

CLOSING DATE: Friday, January 31, 2014

The Skidmore College Faculty Research Initiative Grant Program was established to encourage significant scholarly, curricular, and pedagogical efforts beyond what is funded through Faculty Development Grants.  In the spring, the FDC will make four awards of up to $3,000 each. The grant period will be between four to twelve months from start to finish. A final report on the project describing the results and significance of the work accomplished, as well as an expense report, is due at the close of that period.
 
The Faculty Research Initiative Grant is a competitive program open to full-time faculty eligible to return to Skidmore College for 2014-2015.
