Faculty Teaching/Research Enhancement Grants (FTREG) [Duke Internal Funding -- for Duke Faculty Only]
he Provost’s Office is again offering support to Duke faculty via a Faculty Teaching/Research Enhancement Grant (FTREG). Faculty may use an FTREG for one of two purposes:
- To acquire additional skills, knowledge, or experiences outside of or beyond their main discipline that will enhance their capacity to carry out original research and/or provide excellent learning experiences for Duke students. Supported activities include: a cognate training workshop; field work opportunity that includes specific training; short-term engagement with a community organization relevant to a new line of research; travel to meet with a leading scholar or group of scholars working in an area highly relevant to the applicant’s scholarly growth or teaching trajectory.
- To underwrite a trip to undertake fieldwork, interviews, or archival exploration in order to scope out a new direction for research.
Grant funds may not be used for attendance at conferences, nor for salary support.
Funds awarded will most likely fall within the range of $2,000-$5,000. In unusual circumstances, funding may be available up to an absolute cap of $10,000.
Deadline: October 31, 2019
Any Duke regular rank faculty member with a primary appointment in a school other than Medicine or Nursing may propose faculty teaching/research enhancement activities.
A preference will be given to faculty at the assistant or associate level.
