Book Completion Grant Program Application

The purpose of the Book Completion Grant Program is to assist CLASS faculty with the publication of scholarly research. The purposes covered from this program are expanded from the past, and include the “last data acquisition trip,” or other research purposes needed to complete an ongoing project. Normally funds under this program will be directed toward book projects within about two years of publication. Applications are accepted at any time. The maximum award under this program is $4,000, but larger amounts may be possible with sufficient justification. The Research Committee is expected to review applications at least twice a year, about on December 15th and March 15th. If timing is an issue, please include an explanation.

To apply please complete the project description as well as budget justification below. The project description is expected to emphasize the academic merit of the project, and thus should include documentation available from the publisher including contracts, and reviews if available. The budget justification should describe how the listed expenses will assist in completion of your project. Scan and submit your application on-line to Dr. Steven Craig, Associate Dean for Faculty and Research at scraig@uh.edu. Or, send a hard copy to 402 AH, Class Dean’s Office, Mail Code 3000.

Research Progress Grant Application

The CLASS Dean’s Office is accepting applications for grants to further faculty research. This Program will provide up to $4,000 for research assistance, travel, data and information collection, or other activities that will further publication or performance. This program is open to tenure and tenure track faculty, or non-tenure track faculty with research as part of their regular job duties. The grant funds may be used for any legitimate research purpose except faculty salaries. Payments to graduate students are permitted, as are funds for travel (not conferences), to pay experimental subjects, or any other needed expense. The maximum award is $4,000.

Applications will have a maximum length of two double spaced pages of 12 point type. Additionally, proposals require a budget, a budget justification, and a 2 page c.v. Applicants will be awarded funds based on the academic merit of the work. Faculty are urged to consider that the CLASS Research Committee will do the first round of reviews, thus the proposals should be aimed at a general academic audience. The application deadline is Friday, March 13, 2015, at 5pm.

Recipients of the CLASS Research Progress Grants are required to submit a report describing how the research grant furthered their research by August 31, 2016.

Scan and submit your application on-line to Dr. Steven Craig, Associate Dean for Faculty and Research at scraig@uh.edu. Or, send a hard copy to 402 AH, Class Dean’s Office, Mail Code 3000.
