Faculty Research Fund

CURAS Faculty Research Fund

The CURAS Faculty Research Fund, established by Edward O’Connor, Ph.D., provost, to support and enhance the research and scholarly work of full-time faculty with undergraduate research students at Creighton University.

There are three types of opportunities for research/scholarly proposals with undergraduates that will be considered for support:

1) New Investigators – faculty who have NOT previously involved undergraduates in their scholarly work are invited to apply for these special grants with the intent to build on this initial project with undergraduates in order to sustain an active undergraduate research presence in their work

2) Committed Investigators – faculty who have sustained undergraduate students in their research for at least three consecutive years and have a proven track record of commitment to the development of undergraduate scholars

3) Investigator supply grant – faculty who have involved undergraduates in their research and are in need of a small amount of funding to support an undergraduate research project

Full-Time Faculty holding a tenured or tenure-track position as a Teaching-Research faculty member. Faculty holding non-tenure track positions such as Resident, Research, Adjunct, Special, Visiting, Affiliate or Contributed-Service Faculty are not eligible.

Amount of award
New investigator (up to $2,000)
Committed investigator (up to $5,000)
Investigator supply grant (up to $1,000)
