The first recipients of R-Initiative grants administered by the Division of Research in 2017 have secured an additional $2.5 million in external funding, have two book proposals in press and six manuscripts under review, have written four peer-reviewed journal articles and eight book chapters, have submitted 17 conference papers and presentations, and have held one juried art exhibition.
These are just the early results of R-Initiative programs launched in 2017. The Division of Research has awarded more than $3 million in R-Initiative funding for research projects involving 172 faculty members across all colleges over the past two years. Programs provide funds for equipment purchases, for hiring research faculty, for initiating or completing research projects, and for competing for high-value external research funding.
In January, the Division awarded SEED grants to 11 faculty members from nine different departments and five colleges. These funds help faculty members initiate new research or complete scholarly products, such as books or book chapters, peer-reviewed publications, or visual and performing arts showings.
