Faculty Summer Research and Creative Endeavor

Manchester University invites proposals from its faculty members for research and creative endeavor to be conducted during the summer  in an area of the faculty member's academic interest. Course development or revision proposals that integrate a new high impact practice into a course will be considered along with research and creative endeavor proposals, especially those that involve students. 

Proposal should include the purpose of the proposed research or creative creation, a definitive budget (stipend, supplies, travel), a bibliography, and a time-action plan including your goals for the research when it is completed. If a proposal involves commitments by other individuals, please include supportive letters indicating that those individuals have agreed to their roles and timelines.
