Are you interested in the V.P. Discretionary Grant Fund?
The Academic Strategic Plan has been approved, and one of the five strategic themes is “engagement and outreach.” To reflect this theme the VPR&PS Discretionary Fund will focus on “outreach scholarship.”Outreach Scholarship projects represent research efforts in which there is a mutually beneficial collaboration between UNH and external partners to generate and apply relevant knowledge to directly benefit the public. Applications are being accepted for FY04 discretionary grants. Application guidelines are available in the VPR&PS office and will be sent out to all faculty (tenure-track, research, extension, clinical) in late February. For additional information contact Kathy Mandsager, at 2-1997. or via e-mail. The deadline for receipt of proposals is April 15.
