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 for research related activities by tenure-track and tenured full-time faculty.  Funds are intended to be spent within three months of being awarded.

All recipients are asked to present their work via poster for the annual CHHS Research Week (Spring semester).

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.


Beginning Spring 2018 the QTAG will have two funding cycles per semester. Deadlines: February 1, April 1, September 1, November 1. Awards will be made within 3 to 4 weeks of the respective deadline and are expected to be spent within three months.

Faculty may only receive one QTAG award per academic year.  Unsuccessful applications may be revised and resubmitted for subsequent funding cycles. Successful completion of the current/ prior QTAG along with outcomes listed in the award is required before a new QTAG can be awarded.
