Dean's Club Grants
The Walker College of Business Dean's Club funds research grants each academic year to assist faculty in conducting research. Grants are available to tenured and tenure track faculty for research expenses in increments of $1,000. Awards greater than $1,000 may be considered under special circumstances. These grants are designed to reimburse faculty for out of pocket type expenses necessary for conducting research. The types of research projects that will be considered are new research projects (i.e., this is not research that has already been conducted) and a new direction of a current research project (i.e., the researcher has conducted research in a subject area and now wishes to extend the study in a new direction). Each recipient will be asked to participate in a Dean's Club Grant Recipient Poster Session event. More information about dates and presentation format will be provided to grant recipients. To submit a proposal or for more information, please email email@example.com.
