Internal Research Funding

The Faculty Internal Research Program (FIRP) provides a source of funding for full-time faculty research projects in all disciplines. The purpose of these grants is not to supersede external funding, nor to provide ongoing support for a project. Rather, FIRP funds are intended to provide start-up funding for novel research projects and/or to support research which cannot be funded through other sources. FIRP awards may also serve as a source of funding for substantially revised projects that have been previously funded through this mechanism.
