Application Due Date:  Faculty may apply at any time between 15 August, 2018 and 15 February, 2019.              


Faculty Start-Up grants support transformative learning by encouraging a variety of research, creative, and scholarly activities in all disciplines at the University.   


The Faculty Start-up Grants are designed to provide support for RCSA for full-time, non-temporary faculty during their first 18 months of employment as a tenure-tracked faculty member at UCO.

Additional Information: There is no deadline to apply for this program but please be aware due to limited funds that awards will be granted on a "first come, first served" basis.  Applications will be accepted and reviewed from 15 August 2018 through 15 February 2019.   Funds must be expended by the Faculty member during the academic year the grant was awarded. 

If your project requires an IRB approval, an IRB application does not need to be completed at the time of your on-campus grant application but the IRB approval must be obtained before your research project begins.  For more information on the IRB application process, visit the website:
