Funding Amounts

Scholarly Engagement Grants are funded on a competitive basis up to the following limits:

   -Maximum of $1250 per conference
   -Maximum of $2500 per applicant per calendar year

Applicants must include a notice of any funding received from another source; duplicate funding (i.e., funding for the same purpose) is not allowed.  Grant awards will balance the demands of multiple meritorious proposals against limited funds. The faculty committee consisting of representatives from all colleges will determine award based upon: Type of presentation, Dean and CIRT recommendations of conference impact to GCU, number of conferences applicant has attended using grant during calendar year, number of presenters and amount of funding available.  In case of equal merit, preference will be given to full-time faculty, those applying for an oral presentation,  and those that have not received a recent Faculty Scholarly Engagement Grant.
