McCombs Research Excellence Grant Program
The McCombs Research Excellence Grant program recognizes and promotes research excellence in the McCombs School by supporting influential and high-quality faculty research projects. The grants are awarded based on competitive project proposals, and can be used to cover substantive research expenses (such as data gathering costs, graduate assistantships and database purchases). Criteria for awarding research excellence grants include the novelty and likely academic impact of the proposed research, potential to significantly enhance the research reputation of the faculty and the school, and prospects for facilitating collaboration among faculty members.
We invite proposals from McCombs tenure-track and tenured faculty members twice a year and usually award several individual research grants (ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 per grant) as well as an occasional conference grant.
