The application due date is Friday, April 16th.

Only students who do not receive funds for housing for the entirety of their project will be eligible.

Eligibility pre-determination is required before completing the form.

  • All sources of funds available to the student for the project must be reported on the application. 

As a recipient of a housing grant, I understand that:

  • Housing grants to Scholarship Fellows/Scholarship Research Fellows (non-employees) are usually taxable, but the college is not required to report the payments to the student nor the IRS (exception: payments to NRA students, as noted above). Recipients may be obligated to report “excess scholarship” on their individual income tax returns and should consult a tax professional about their individual circumstances. Grants will be paid via direct deposit with the first scholarship payment.
  • Housing grants to Volunteers (non-employees) are usually taxable, but the college is not required to report the payments to the student nor the IRS (exception: payments to NRA students, as noted above). Recipients may be obligated to report “excess scholarship” on their individual income tax returns and should consult a tax professional about their individual circumstances. Grants will be paid via direct deposit.
  • Housing grants to Research Assistants/Employees are taxable and will be included in the first payroll deposit. As required by law, taxes may be withheld at a higher rate in the first pay period than in subsequent pay periods because the total sum paid is larger than in subsequent pay periods.

If you are approved for housing grant assistance you are responsible for paying your housing fees directly to the landlord or housing provider. Students living on campus should make payments in Business Services, Jackson Court #2.

The DRI-Group Investigations Program provides funding for off-campus trips that support the learning objectives of a course or that provide a learning opportunity that enhances the undergraduate experience. Applications for a spring semester course/program (including summer trips) are due October 5th in the prior semester; applications for a fall semester course/program (including winter break) are due February 1st of the prior semester. Funding is limited to $15,000 per grant. 

Note: If you are planning an international trip, you must work with Naomi Otterness, Director of Education Abroad, on fulfilling compliance and safety matters. You should contact her (naotterness@davidson.edu) prior to filling out an application. 

Funds may be provided to assist with the publication of manuscripts that have received final acceptance for publication by a scholarly press or public dissemination of artistic work. A copy of the letter of agreement and any invoices must be submitted with the application. Fundable expenses include: cost of reprints of articles published in scholarly journals; per page journal fees (not covered by publisher or royalties); indexing; preparation of photos, line drawings, or other artistic assistance; expenses related to exhibitions in which their work will be shown. A funding ceiling for these grants will be established on an annual basis by the VPAA. 

Note:

  1. Only tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply.
  2. These grants are independent of FS&R applications.
  3. Decisions are made by the Associate Dean of Faculty on a rolling basis.
  4. Submit letter of agreement and receipts to Fuji Lozada (erlozada@davidson.edu) and Donella Mayes (domayes@davidson.edu).

Application Deadline: Rolling.

You are submitting a grant proposal for a Faculty Study and Research Grant. The regular cycle application period ended on Friday, January 22, 2021. Applications after that date are considered Just In Time (JIT). Please note that requests are limited to $4,000 for tenure-track and tenured faculty and $1,500 for a visiting faculty member in a continuing position. While faculty may choose to support students with Faculty Study and Research support, the application must be clearly written to reflect the faculty members research, goals and anticipated outcomes rather than outcomes related to the student experience and student training.
