Purpose and Scope
The Cameron University Research Grant Program has been established to support scholarly research projects that are primarily research or experimental in nature. Proposals will be evaluated on merit with special consideration to proposals that meet the following: 1) promote student involvement and/or benefit student learning, 2) lead to publications or other scholarly products and 3) establish a sound basis for the pursuit of external grant opportunities.
As you apply for Cameron Research grants, please keep the following policies in mind. Faculty may request the purchase of equipment only when the equipment is essential to a scholarly work or research project and is not already reasonably available and accessible elsewhere on campus or through other external funding sources. Equipment is usually designated as 1) special purpose equipment and 2) general equipment. Special purpose equipment is any equipment necessary to the project. General purpose equipment includes typewriters, personal computers, etc.
The applicant will submit a formal request in the form of a proposal to the Office of Academic Affairs through the Department Chair and the Dean/Director. The proposal will be reviewed by the Cameron University Research Committee. Proposal submissions for all internal grants involving human subjects should include a copy of the certificate indicated the successful completion of the CITI course. Proposal submissions for all internal grants involving non-human vertebrates should include approval of the project by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).
The following form and respective guidelines should be used in preparing and submitting a Research Grant.
