All full-time, VU-employed (Provost-reporting) faculty are eligible. Non-tenure track faculty must obtain approval from their dean.
Faculty may submit one proposal per year as lead faculty.
Applicants are encouraged to consider how their proposal advances inclusive excellence.
Funds may not be used to support faculty salary.
Faculty who receive a Sports & Society Micro-Grant award are not eligible to submit another proposal (as lead faculty) until their current award is complete and all reporting requirements have been met.
Awards are based partly on need. As a result, each participating faculty member must disclose institutional resources available in the form of start-up funds or other discretionary research funds. All institutional research-support funds must be noted, including endowed-chair funds, annual allocations and other such sources.
All funds must be used within the fiscal year they are awarded.
