The University of Delaware provides for assistance to full-time tenure track faculty for individual research and professional development through “General University Research (GUR) Grants.” The main purpose of the GUR program is to assist untenured, early career faculty members with research, scholarly or creative projects. Proposals involving interdisciplinary research are especially encouraged.
The primary purpose of the research grant is to advance the scholarship or creative activities of the recipient. Research projects or creative activities that meet this goal and also provide graduate student support and training opportunities are considered most favorably.
All full-time tenure track faculty members are eligible to apply for GUR grants. Although there is no restriction on the number of awards an individual may receive over the years, all other factors being equal, preference will be given to faculty that have not received awards previously.
