Grants and Contracts Subcommittee

Grants are defined as money given for a specific purpose. In academia, faculty may receive grants for the performance of research, service projects, enhancing or developing pedagogical skills, and/or equipment and supplies needed to facilitate the aforementioned areas. Generally, grants are awarded based on the merit of a proposal written for said monies.

Purpose

The purpose of the Grants-and Contracts Subcommittee is:

  1. Assisting faculty with finding appropriate funding sources;
  2. Work to encourage faculty to write proposals to help meet contractual obligations for tenure and promotion;
  3. Aid faculty in the writing process by taking part in the editing process in order to help faculty use appropriate content and writing style germane to grant proposal;
  4. Sponsoring grant-writing workshops for faculty.
