Financial Assistance for Research
The Committee on Research & Service promotes, fosters, and encourages research, publication and quality teaching by directly assisting faculty research and development as much as possible within the limits of available funds.
Assistance for research and writing may take the following forms:
Purchase of some supplies.
Support of publication, including page costs. (See Subvention Policy for additional information.)
The following are examples of financial assistance not ordinarily given:
Purchase of supplies normally provided under department budgetary funds.
Equipment that accrues permanently to the individual (e.g., the purchase of a camera might not be approved but film purchases might be).
Supplements to salaries.
Travel usually provided by the department. (Exceptions may be made by the Committee in special cases).
Repeated subsidy of publication.
Copying, interlibrary loan, computer time (usually provided by the department budget).
When the project is completed, a brief report on the use of the funds must be submitted to the Associate Academic Vice President along with a list of expenditures and, when possible, receipts. If project is already complete, it is not necessary to submit another report.
