Fourteen researchers from the University of Notre Dame have received internal grants from Notre Dame Research. Eight faculty have received Equipment Restoration and Renewal awards and six faculty have received Francis M. Kobyashi Travel Fund grants.

“Our goal at Notre Dame Research is to support faculty and staff as they strive for success, whether that is through the Internal Grant Program or other services,” said Richard E. Billo, associate vice president for research and professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. “Although the Equipment Restoration and Renewal and Kobayashi Travel Fund programs were created to serve different needs, both programs have a distinct purpose for advancing research, scholarship, and creative endeavor at Notre Dame.”

The ERR grant program was created to assist in the restoration, replacement, and renewal of the facilities needed for faculty research at the University of Notre Dame. The Equipment Restoration and Renewal recipients are:

The Kobayashi Travel Fund was created to provide funding for the initiation of new research by subsidizing travel expenses. It may be used to consult archives, museums, or other sites that house primary materials, as well as for travel to acquire and develop research data. The Kobayashi Travel Fund awardees for this round are:

The competition for the Equipment Restoration and Renewal grant program is typically announced during the winter, while the Kobayashi Travel Fund accepts proposals once in the fall semester and again in the spring semester. Notre Dame Research’s Internal Grants Program supports faculty researchers and programs with the goal of advancing the University’s research mission.
