Funding: Faculty / Research Grants

Call for research grant proposals, maximum $3,000 per grant, is sent out the latter part of the spring semester, to support research during the summer through the following academic year. 

Priority will be given to:

  • Junior faculty or those with low/no alternative funding sources.
  • Faculty who need to travel to conduct East or Southeast Asia-related research.
  • Faculty who have not been funded by APSI recently.
  • Faculty who have done conspicuous service for APSI.

Research grant guidelines are as follows:

  • The grants provide seed money to launch new research projects, support research write-up projects and support research on components of larger on-going projects.
  • The total amount that may be awarded to a faculty member in an academic year is $3,000.
  • Proposals should include a one-paragraph abstract (100 words or less), a more detailed description of the project (max. 2 pages), and an estimated budget, including, if applicable, other funding sources.
  • Each recipient is required to submit a short summary of the research accomplished with the grant within 3 months of completion of the project. This report can simply be a copy of the report sent to the University Research Council, if both awards cover the same project.

The monies awarded must be used by June 30th of the following year; otherwise, funds revert to APSI.
