Funding For Excellence
The proposal deadline for the FY19 round of the Funding for Excellence Faculty Research Grants program is Friday, September 28 at 5:00. A full description of the Funding for Excellence Program as well the application submission portal and a budget matrix are available on the Office of Research Services web site at: Funding for Excellence Program
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.
Please email Leslie Burgess (Burgessla@umkc) or me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you may have on the program in general of the upcoming submission deadline.
