Research Enhancement Program (REP) applications due April 28

The REP provides seed money (up to $10,000) so that faculty members will be able to compete more successfully for larger research grants from external sources for continuation of their research. Tenured and research faculty will be evaluated separately from tenure-track faculty who are not yet tenured (thus considered a "new investigator") with funds being designated separately for each group. TWU will hold another REP competition in Fall 2016 for 2016-2017 REP funding. More about “Research Enhancement Program (REP) applications due April 28”...
