General Research Fund (GRF) Competition
The General Research Fund (GRF) is a competitive award program that provides funding for the advancement of the university's research program. The Office of Research provides funds to each school or college and assists in the administration of these funds. The Vice Chancellor for the Office of Research has delegated to each entity the responsibility for awarding the funds. Each entity determines proposal criteria and has its own review committee, guidelines, application forms, application process and submission deadline. The Faculty Senate Research Committee is responsible for reviewing reports submitted by each school or college outlining the progress each entity has made in meeting its research goals. The allocation of funds to all entities for the following three-year period will be determined by this review.
Each faculty member on the Lawrence campus is eligible to submit one GRF proposal to his or her school or college as the principal investigator. Awards will be made based on the merit of the proposal, which includes the scholarly excellence of the proposal and its benefit to the university and to the individual researcher. Each entity may add additional proposal criteria as they deem appropriate. All funds are awarded for a one-year period (July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018) and may be used for summer salary, student or GRA salary, supplies and travel. The State of Kansas does not allow payment of tuition with these funds.
GRF Guidelines & GRF Handbook for research administrators and PI's to use in managing a GRF award is available. If you have any questions regarding GRF funding, please contact Whitney Onasch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the table below you will find the contact and submission information for each entity. Please contact the applicable entity for detailed application information.
