Notre Dame Research opens the application period for Internal Grant Program

Notre Dame Research is now accepting applications for awards within their Internal Grant Program. All full-time, regular faculty are encouraged to apply for the Faculty Research Support Program (FRSP) Regular Grant and the FRSP Initiation Grant by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 25, 2021.

“We are grateful to be able to offer the FRSP grant program again this year, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic. The FRSP program aims to drive growth within distinctive research and scholarship programs across Notre Dame,” said Patricia Clark, associate vice president for research and Rev. John Cardinal O'Hara Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry.  “I look forward to seeing the innovative ideas faculty are planning to pursue.”

The FRSP Initiation Grant provides seed funding to established faculty initiating new programs of research, scholarship, or creative endeavor and new faculty beginning their research programs. Grants ranging up to $10,000 of total funding, as appropriate to the research proposal, are available through this program.

The FRSP Regular Grant provides funds to support outstanding research, scholarship, or creative endeavor that will make a major contribution to any field of study. This should not be viewed as a seed funding opportunity for the generation of preliminary results. Grants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 of total funding, as appropriate to the research proposal, over three years are available through this program.
