Electronic Application Submission Form
Quick Turn-Around Grants are small grants in the amount of $1,000-$3,000 for research and creative activity, funded by Facilities & Administrative costs accrued through the external grant process. These funds are provided to support critical and immediate needs, and are intended to be spent within three months of being awarded.
Examples of QTAG activities are travel to conduct research at an archive, costs associated with shipping artwork for an exhibit, purchase of lab supplies to further existing research, and/or costs associated with mailed survey materials.
Funds may be used to support research assistant(s); materials and supplies; travel/shipping/other expenses to conduct research/creative activity, or the dissemination of research/creative activity. Requests for conference travel must include a copy of the program, or other evidence, clearly indicating your attendance at the conference is for the purpose of disseminating research or creative activity. This might also include participation in a panel, a scheduled workshop, an exhibition, or similar venue.
Requests must be submitted by the last day of the month preceding the month in which the funds are needed. Awards will be made by the 15th of the following month and are expected to be spent within three months.
Faculty may only receive one QTAG award. Unsuccessful applications may be revised and resubmitted for subsequent funding cycles.
