CSBS Project Grants

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences offers small grants to promote research and creative activity by CSBS faculty members.  The major purpose of this program is to support projects that are preliminary to larger works; equal consideration will be given to those done in preparation for an external grant application.

Funds may be requested for expenses related to research and creative activity.   These expenses might include supplies, equipment, photocopying, printing, mailing, student/clerical assistance, or travel to conduct research.  Please note that travel funds for participation in professional conferences are not provided by this program, nor are expenses related to teaching, service, or other non-research activities.
