Call for Applications: Research Incentive Program
The Research and Creativity Council Incentive Program is accepting applications until 4:00 p.m. Friday, February 23, 2018, for funds to promote faculty research, scholarly, and creative activities. Please submit completed applications to the Sponsored Programs Office in Buckham Hall B206. Three council members have been appointed to review all applications received by the above deadline.
Incentive funds administered by the Research and Creativity Council are intended to promote faculty research, scholarly, and creative activities. Their ultimate goal is to generate additional funded programs. At the end of the award period, recipients are required to submit a report documenting the use of the funds. They are then required to submit a grant proposal within the following year to an outside sponsoring agency through the Sponsored Programs Pre-Award and Contract Services Office. Submitting a proposal through the Buffalo State College Foundation does not meet this requirement. Recipients are also obligated to participate in the Faculty and Staff Fall Forum, which takes place in October.
Expenditures considered for support under this program include travel to consult with a funding source or program officer, or to a workshop sponsored by a potential sponsor; student assistance; consultation with specialists in the field; preparation of specialized support materials for proposals (e.g., graphs, drawings, resource books); release time; and any other expense that can be justified. Funds may not be requested for the purchase of computers, laptops, etc. Also, it is not the council’s intention to directly pay an individual for writing a proposal. Please contact Jessica Berg, director of pre-award and contract services, with questions regarding the incentive application.
