Research and Engagement Academy

REA Class of 2020

REA advances and supports successful scholarly careers by strengthening the quality and quantity of grant proposals submitted to federal agencies and foundations and by increasing the diversity of faculty who are awarded funding.


 

Academy scholars commit to submit a competitive grant proposal, to attend six half-day workshops and to work closely with an assigned “scholarly coach.” Scholarly coaches are senior UNH faculty with established track records of external funding. This faculty professional development Academy is one of several programs offered by the Engagement and Faculty Development office to help support scholarship and engagement.

The mission for the University of New Hampshire’s Research and Engagement Academy is to enhance faculty members’ scholarly careers.

We seek to broaden the number and diversity of faculty who submit proposals to external funders and who are awarded grants to enhance their scholarship and engagement agendas.

To support our vision, the Academy goals are to:

  • Enhance scholars' relationships with and understanding of federal agencies and foundations;
  • Encourage scholars to develop a team approach to enhance grant writing success;
  • Provide information and access to on-campus proposal writing and submission resources;
  • Provide information and access to colleagues with successful grant records to learn about successful strategies with federal agencies and foundations;
  • Catalyze interactions among scholars and scholarly coaches to create robust and productive scholarly agendas;
  • Create opportunities among faculty for multidisciplinary scholarship and engagement.

The University of New Hampshire’s Research and Engagement Academy is designed to enhance faculty members’ scholarly careers by strengthening the quality and quantity of proposals submitted to external funders and to increase the diversity of faculty who are awarded grant funding. Tenure-track, research, and extension faculty who exhibit promise are nominated to the Research and Engagement Academy by their dean or director. As a result of a competitive application review process, conducted by a team of UNH faculty, faculty scholars are selected from those who applied. Participation in the Academy is representative of all UNH Colleges, UNH-Manchester, and UNH Cooperative Extension.
