Faculty and Students - Faculty Research Funds Program

Contact Person:
Gayle Jones
(207) 581-1498

The Faculty Research Fund Program assists faculty in establishing or maintaining high quality research programs and other creative achievements. The Vice President for Research provides funds for this program. Eligibility is limited to full-time faculty. This includes tenured, tenure-eligible, and soft-money faculty for whom research is an expected component of their appointment.

There are three competitions held annually: The Regular Faculty Research competition supports work that can be completed in one year and provides research support other than faculty salaries; the Scholarly Materials and Equipment competition is for the acquisition of equipment or library collections; and the Summer Faculty Research competition provides $8,000 awards for faculty summer salaries for a minimum of 1.5 months research effort. Recipients are selected based on recommendations by the Faculty Research Funds Committee. The Committee also recommends the recipient of the Presidential Research & Creative Achievement Award. This award is made to a faculty member who has attained distinction in research or creative achievement.
