Research Scholar Grants

The  Research Scholar Grants   program provides funding for innovative scholarship and creative expression projects that are unlikely to have extramural funding options available. These awards support humanistic research and efforts that result in the creation of artistic or humanist bodies of work. All full-time, VU-employed (Provost-reporting) faculty are eligible.
