USA Faculty Development Council
Plans are under way for the 21st Annual USA Faculty Development Council Research Forum to be held March 10-14, 2014. This year's Spring Forum Program will feature a new format. The graduate student "3 Minute Thesis" competition replacing the speaker format is scheduled for Thursday, March 13, 2014. Competitors will be selected from USA graduate students actively engaged in research. The poster session will remain as in the past and faculty and graduate students are encouraged to present their research, scholarly and creative projects. Contact DeAnna Cobb in the graduate school office at 460-6310 for further information about the forum. Download the forum submission form HERE . There is also a new abstract template page to use for the actual abstract HERE . Call 460-6310 with any questions.Call for Proposals
This is the annual call for USA Faculty Development Council (USAFDC) proposals. The purpose of the USADFC grant is to initiate and strengthen research programs and to increase faculty/program competitiveness for extramural grants. Additionally, USADFC supports worthy projects for which external funding is not generally available. Please refer to the "General Guidelines for USAFDC Grant Applications" for additional information on what is acceptable, as well as inappropriate under USADFC funding. The application can be downloaded by clicking here. The General Guidelines for preparing the proposal are available here.
The deadline for receiving complete application packages in the Graduate School Office, AD 300, is Monday, January 27, 2014. Applications requiring IRB review are accepted pending approval. Refer to the general guidelines for USAFDC grant applications for complete details. It is anticipated that awards will be announced in late March. Award recipients are expected to present outcomes of USAFDC projects at a future Annual Research Forum.
