The Faculty Grants Committee (FGC) is a standing committee of the Academic Senate. The primary function of the FGC is to evaluate and recommend funding for grant proposals from the following funding programs:
- Faculty Grant Program
- Peter White Scholar
- Charles C. Spooner Student Research
- Instructional Improvement and Curriculum Development
The Guide to University Funding of Research and Creative Works (published by the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research) explains the requirements for each grant program and lists the criteria by which the Committee evaluates proposals.
When needed, the Committee will examine and suggest necessary changes to grant programs in the Guide. In addition, the Committee shall serve in an advisory role on those matters the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research brings to the attention of the Committee.
