Briefly, the Funding for Excellence Program (FFE) is an institutionally funded grants program to support the highest level of research, scholarship, and artistic endeavors by UMKC faculty. FFE grants are awarded once a year, on a competitive basis, by a decision of the UMKC Research Advisory Council. The program will provide funding for faculty projects up to $15,000. The three goals of the FFE program are to:
- Enhance the research stature and scholarly reputation of UMKC
- Support excellence in the scholarship, research, and creative endeavors of tenured and tenure-track faculty members of all ranks; and,
- Provide a financial means to achieve a tangible result.
