The FRSP Regular Grant provides funding for researchers in any field of study to support outstanding research that will make a major contribution. Grants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 of total funding, as appropriate to the research proposal, over three years are available through this program.

“This is an exciting opportunity for our faculty in all disciplines,” said Hildegund Müller, Associate Vice President for Research and Associate Professor of Classics. “Over the last years, funds provided by the internal grant programs have been used for a wide variety of projects, from detecting counterfeit anti-malaria drugs to restoring the world’s first animated film. I look forward to seeing submissions representing many diverse areas of research, scholarship, and the creative arts.”

In addition to the FRSP competition, the Kobayashi Travel Fund is also accepting its first round of applications until Friday, September 15, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. EST. Other internal grants from Notre Dame Research will begin accepting applications in the coming months.
