Lurcy Grants support research by faculty of the School of Liberal Arts. They can be used to help support individual faculty travel to research collections or to help pay for the costs of purchasing essential materials for faculty research.
A faculty member should submit a proposal describing how he or she will use the money and explaining its contribution to the faculty member's larger scholarly goals. Proposals for Lurcy grants follow the same guidelines as Center for Scholar grants, however, Lurcy grants are only given out once a year. Full guidelines are listed below. This year, Lurcy Grant proposals are due in early March. (See exact due date at deadlines page.) A progress report on the grant is due by the end of the fall semester following the completion of the grant.
