IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The Office of the Provost and the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research are currently reviewing and revising the FDR guidelines for the 2014-2015 academic year. It is expected that the revised guidelines will be finalized by the end of August, and a workshop will be held to review the new guidelines and procedures in early September.

The Faculty Development and Research Grants or (FDR) program, is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and provides funding to ESU faculty members to further their professional development in one of three ways: the Travel Grant, the Mini Grant, and the Major Grant. The Office of Sponsored Projects and Research, which resides within the division of Research and Economic Development, helps administer the grant process.

All grant proposals, whether travel, mini, or major, must be submitted to the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research, ESU Innovation Center third floor, by 1:00 PM on the due date; due dates are listed in the appropriate grant category guidelines.

In order to avoid lost applications, we ask that faculty deliver their applications to OSPR themselves and sign the log; it is faculty responsibility to deliver all the necessary documents and signatures to the office.

Questions should be directed to Dr. Irina Khusid, Chair of FDR, at (570) 422-3092, to your departmental contact, or to Christina McDonald, Manager of the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research at cmcdonald9@esu.edu, (570) 422-7954.
