The Faculty Research Council (FRC) serves as an advisory body to the Associate Vice President (AVP) for the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), and serve as stewards of the Internal Grant Programs. The FRC meets regularly with the AVP for ORSP to provide advice and strategic guidance on behalf of the SHUS faculty.

The FRC also oversees the internal grant review process and the distribution of internal grant dollars to faculty and staff in order to support creative activities, facilitate the search for external grant dollars, foster interdisciplinary scholarship, and offer an opportunity to hone grant writing skills through constructive review of proposals.

Please reach out to FRC members with any questions regarding internal grant programs and other related inquiries
