The purpose of the HSU Faculty Research Incentive Award Program is to stimulate tenured/tenure-track faculty members to develop and submit full proposals to external funding agencies and organizations for research and educational projects. Applications to develop full proposals on any fundable topic are eligible providing they seek to advance or promulgate the mission of HSU. In accepting an Award, a Principal Investigator (PI) commits to develop and submit a full proposal for external funding through the campus research office.
Applications from single PIs are encouraged, however collaborative applications involving faculty from across the disciplines that promote interdisciplinary, integrative research and/or educational initiatives and that include regional and disciplinary diversity are preferred. Applications seeking assigned time funding to develop new, previously un-submitted full proposals shall be considered; applications seeking assigned time to revise and re-submit existing proposals shall not be considered.
