Internal Awards

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and the University of Massachusetts President's Office provide funding for Internal Award programs.

Research Development Grant Portal (InfoReady)

The University Scholars/University Research Fellows Program aims to support research and scholarly effort primarily for tenured and tenure-track faculty. These awards are expected to result in peer-reviewed journal publications, books, or displays of juried artistic/creative work and support the pursuit of external funding to support scholarship and creative work.

Eligible applicants are all tenure-track and tenured UMass Dartmouth faculty. Preference will be given to Humanities, College of Visual and Performing Arts, and Charlton College of Business faculty who are Assistant or Associate Professors and have not received an internal UMassD grant in the past three years.

The Request for Proposals is available here, and applications will be taken via the Research Development Grant Portal.

Applications are due by March 18, 2024.
