Guidelines for Faculty Research Grant (FRG) applications for Fall 2015 are available here.
FRG grants provide up to $6,000 for conduct of research, with emphasis on projects likely to enable development of a new research focus, expand applicants’ research programs beyond their current scope, or enable ongoing programs to have expanded impact. For returning applicants, guidelines are the same as last year. Applications are due on October 9.
Even though principals do not directly educate students, their activities and decisions shape the teaching and learning that takes place in their schools. Understanding the relationships between how principals allot their time and educational outcomes could improve their training, selection, development, and evaluation. The main goals of our Faculty Innovation Grant are to 1) document how principals use their time, 2) examine differences in principal time use across various school settings, and 3) link principal time use to behavioral, emotional, and academic outcomes.

On October 17th, applications are due for the 2014 Fall Strohl Undergraduate Research and Senior Thesis Grants. The purpose of the Strohl Grant Program is to encourage students in the humanities and/or social sciences to pursue independent, engaged research outside of their normal coursework. These independent projects should be mentored by a faculty member and should expand the experiences, perspectives, and skills of our students.
As the administrator for this program, I get a lot of questions about the program’s intent and what makes a great Strohl Research Grant proposal. I’ve sat down to collect some of the best bits of advice to help guide you as a student or a mentor in preparing a successful application.

Guidelines for Accelerator grant applications for Fall 2014 are here.
Accelerator grants support teams of Lehigh investigators in developing multi-investigator research programs in particularly promising areas. Based on a team’s identification of a major, specific area of opportunity and ways in which it can excel in that area, these grants provide significant flexibility in use of the grant funds. Teams are expected to use these grants to broaden and quicken their access to sources of outside support that will enable them to sustain highly productive multi-investigator programs. These grants should enable an already strong group to grow a sustainable program more rapidly than would otherwise have been likely.
