These grants are intended to support research and creative activity that is not already funded by other sources, to jumpstart proposals for external grant seeking, and to provide supplemental funds to ongoing projects, as necessary.
Drake Research Grants (DRG) offer up to $3,000 per project to underwrite the direct cost of faculty conducting research or creative activity. Drake Research Grants may be used to pay for such expenses as:
Full-time faculty on continuing appointment
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, as long as funds are available.
An interdisciplinary panel of your peers, in consultation with the Deputy Provost, will make a determination of funding within 30-45 days of submission.
Please email a 5-10 page document that includes:
Research involving human subjects must be reviewed by our Institutional Review Board (link: https://www.drake.edu/irb/) prior to funds being released.
Faculty are not required to share their plans for enrichment and development with their department chair or Dean; however, we expect that faculty will exhaust funding available to them through departmental, college/school, and other sources, before applying for a Drake Research Grant.
Please reach out with questions and submit your application to:
