Only word-processed applications will be accepted. Submit the original application form, current curriculum vitae or resume and any other application materials as one hard copy or electronically to the Office of Sponsored Programs by the deadline.
After the completion of your project, promptly submit a final report to the Office of Sponsored Programs.

Up to $4,000 will be granted to probationary faculty and staff in their first five (5) years of service to SCSU for research and scholarly activity. Funds should be used to move the applicant towards the peer-reviewed dissemination of their work or in the submission of a proposal for external funding. Awarded funds must be used exclusively for the work outlined in this application’s proposal narrative and may include supplies, equipment, travel or student help. Compensation of up to $2,000 for the applicant is also allowed, calculated in the budget as $2,000 compensation plus $780 (39%) fringe.
Interdisciplinary projects with multiple principal investigators may include an additional compensation (salary + fringe 39%) for each co-investigator. Requested compensations must be consistent with proposed project activities. Maximum award for interdisciplinary projects is $9,000.
Note timeline for spending funds as outlined in deadlines section above. No more than one application per individual can be submitted. Applicants can receive only one University Researcher or New Researcher award in any given fiscal year. Maximum of one award every two years per principal investigator.
Office of Sponsored Programs grant directors will review proposals and make funding recommendations to the Associate Provost for Research and Dean of Graduate Studies who will make the final funding decisions.
Proposals will be reviewed using the criteria outlined on the New Researcher Evaluation Form at the end of the application. In addition, please note the following:
- Given proposals of comparable ratings, greater consideration will be awarded to those applicants who have not received funding or disseminated their work recently.
- New Researcher funds cannot be used to reduce the applicant’s workload.
