Application Instructions

A complete application consists of:

  • REG Application form including a two-page description and one-page budget;
  • List of the applicant's prior publications
  • Recommedation form from the relevant department Chairperson or Dean

To facilitate processing, the REG application and budget should be typed single-spaced.

If the application is being submitted by two or more faculty jointly, check "Joint" in Item two on the Application. Submit one complete Application form cover page with the name of one applicant. Submit additional Application form cover pages for each additional applicant, but only complete lines 1-8 and line 10 for each additional application.

Since most of the reviewers will not have a specialized knowledge of your field of study, you should describe the proposed project in plain English. The two-page REG Application includes the following:

  • Proposed research and its scholarly significance;
  • Research objectives for the period of the proposed work;
  • Relationship to longer-term goals of the applicant's research and to the present state of knowledge in the field;
  • Methodology and means for collecting research data;
  • Relationship to other work in progress by the applicant;
  • Potential for later extramural support and efforts made to identify potential extramural funding.

Include a one-page budget indicating specifically the amount being requested for each category of expenditure, and give a brief explanation and justification for each category.

Brevity, clarity, and directness will facilitate effective review by the Committee. Please do not exceed the three-page limit (two-page Application and one-page Budget).

Please enclose a list of your publications for the prior three years.
