SRFP and SEECR Proposal Administrative Form (REQUIRED)
The purpose of the Summer Research Fellowship Program (SRFP) is to provide seed money for research and future scholarly effort primarily for non-tenured tenure track faculty. It is expected that these awards will result in external grants, journal publications, manuscript publication, or display of artistic work.
Eligible applicants are tenure-track and tenured Old Dominion University faculty. Preference will be given to:
- Investigators who have been at the university for less than four years and who have not served as a Principal Investigator on a significant number of research projects
- Investigators who have not previously received Summer Research Fellowship Awards
More experienced investigators embarking on exploratory studies which represent a significant change in research direction and for which they have received no external funding to date may be considered for funding.
The award includes a stipend of $6,000 and up to $1,000 for justified expenses.
