Boston College Internal Funding
2010 - 2011
There are two types of internal grants for faculty at Boston College: Research Expense Grants and Research Incentive Grants
Research Expense Grants (REG), up to $2,000.
The purpose of the Research Expense Grants Program is to finance the smaller expenses of doing research. These expenses include, but are not limited to, payment for a library card, travel to libraries, library computer services, photocopying at libraries or of journal articles requested through interlibrary loan, and payment to student assistants. The typical award will be for several hundred dollars or less. The maximum for a single research expense grant is $2,000.
Tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply for Research Expense Grants. Faculty should note that Research Expense Grant funds may be used only for expenses related to research and may not be used as income. Funds are not granted retroactively.
Application deadlines are in April for Summer–Fall awards, and in October for Winter–Spring awards. Application forms and guidelines are available from department chairpersons in Arts and Sciences and in Management and deans in the other schools, or from the Office for Sponsored Programs.
Additional information on other internal grants can be found in the Boston College Faculty Handbook.
Research Incentive Grants (RIG), up to $15,000.
