Research Enhancement Program (REP)
Because the application process transitioned from SharePoint to a different process, the deadline for the submission of applications to this program has been extended and applications must now be submitted no later than Thursday, April 19, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. Please refer to the Research Enhancement Program (REP) Guidelines and Research Enhancement Program (REP) Application Forms when completing your application. Proposals submitted to the REP will be reviewed by the Research Support Committee which will make funding recommendations to the Vice Provost for Research.
The primary purpose of the Research Enhancement Program is to provide 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. The REP provides support for all types of faculty research. All full-time tenured faculty, research faculty, and tenure-track faculty members at TWU are eligible to apply and serve as PI and co-investigators. 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.
A list of grantees for FY 2018 are listed here.
