The State-of-the-Art Research & Creativity Conference Grant Program provides UA faculty the opportunity to organize a distinctive conference on UA’s campus that explores and promotes new ideas and initiatives. Priority will be given to new conferences that are 1) designed to engage and involve both graduate and undergraduate students; 2) transformative and cross-disciplinary; and 3) seek to develop mutually beneficial research, scholarship and creative activity partnerships with other research universities, both domestic and international.
The Research Grants Committee (RGC) reviews proposals for internal grants each year from UA full-time tenured, tenured track, clinical and clinical track faculty to receive funding from the Office for Research & Economic Development Small Grant Program in three areas:
Area A – Physical and Biological Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering
Area B – Social and Behavioral Sciences
Area C – Arts and Humanities
The SEC Faculty Travel Program is intended to enhance faculty collaboration that stimulates scholarly initiatives between SEC universities. It gives full-time faculty members from one SEC university the opportunity to travel to another SEC campus to exchange ideas, conduct collaborative research and develop grant proposals, performances and exhibits.
The Summer Excellence in Research Program for Faculty (SEiR-F) promotes high-quality research efforts for Culverhouse College of Business faculty by providing funding for their summer research. Funds may be taken as a summer stipend and/or used to reduce the costs of the proposed research.
