Request for Proposals:  Faculty SOURCE Awards

Faculty SOURCE awards are made possible as a result of contributions from private donors. These awards are intended to support undergraduate research and creative projects across all academic disciplines at SSU.  Each award will provide funding for a faculty mentor working with either an individual or small group of undergraduate SSU students.   


Award Amount:  Each Faculty SOURCE Award provides up to $2000 to be used for travel and/or supplies related to the funded research/creative project. Travel funding can be used to throughout the process of completing the project, or for travel to present the project off campus.


Application:  Faculty mentors should submit proposals using the form below.  Applications due by 4PM 10/24/17.


Deliverables:  Each Faculty SOURCE award must result in a presentation at the annual Symposium of Research and Creativity in May by the undergraduate student(s) who were supported by the funding.  Arts/Humanities students may present a powerpoint or other multimedia presentation rather than a poster.

Allowable Costs:  Funds may only be used to support the students named on the award and their research/creative projects, and may not be used to cover expenses for a course, department, or students or projects not named on the award. Funds may not be used to pay for research assistants, computers or related equipment (i.e. tablets, printers), faculty travel, or international travel. $500 limit per award for mileage expenses. $250 limit on remuneration to study participants; cash payment to study participants not allowed. Recipients of Faculty SOURCE Award funds (both faculty and students) are not eligible to receive a Koret Scholars Award or Student SOURCE Award funds for the same project (i.e. only one award type allowed per project). Poster printing for conferences/symposia will be provided by the SOURCE office (Schulz 1125) to awardees when requests are submitted with at least a 1-week advance notice. Receipts for all expenditures must be submitted by 6/15/18.
