Faculty members are also encouraged to seek opportunities for external funding. The Office of Grants, Sponsored Research and Strategic Initiatives seeks to support faculty in all stages of the grant process, from identifying funding opportunities to coordinating post-award business processes.
Through the generosity of many individuals committed to supporting the activities of our faculty, Stetson University provides a number of internal faculty grants.
- The Stetson Summer Grant program supports teaching, research, and artistic development in the summer months (May – August) immediately following the award. Eligibility for the award is limited to tenured and tenure-track faculty.
- The Willa Dean Lowery Fund is an endowed fund with the purpose of supporting research in the Natural Sciences. The fund encourages innovation and welcomes a wide range of proposals that can result in demonstrated achievement through scientific research.
- The purpose of the Nina B. Hollis Research Impact Award (NBHRIA) is to provide seed funding to support research that expands the boundaries of education. Proposals may address such areas as: academic progress, social/personal growth, school culture and climate, and teacher/leader enhancement.
