Faculty Research Initiative Grant Programs: Overview

Faculty Research Initiative Grant Programs

The Faculty Research Initiative Grant (FRIG) program supports excellence in scholarly work by providing funding for select faculty research projects deemed to be of exceptional merit. The program is open to all faculty who have been employed by Walden for a minimum of six months and is intended to provide “seed money” for the development of faculty research agendas. Funds can be used to support pilot research projects, small-scale research studies and to supplement new areas of investigation that are spin-off studies or sub-studies of larger on-going research projects.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available for research projects conducted by one faculty or staff principle investigator from Walden. Collaborative research projects, in which two Walden faculty members are co-principle investigators, are eligible for grants of up to $20,000.
