Finding Internal Research Grant Opportunities for Faculty, Staff & Students at Gallaudet University

Gallaudet University has a mandated obligation to contribute knowledge likely to benefit the nation's deaf and hard of hearing people, particularly in the areas of education and human services. The Office of Research Support and International Affairs (RSIA) invites Gallaudet faculty, staff, students, and Clerc Center teachers and staff to apply for Gallaudet research grants.

For Faculty, Staff, and Students:

  1. Small Research Grants Program (SRG). The Small Research Grants Program accepts proposals for a wide range of research studies by faculty, Clerc Center teachers, staff, and students. It is expected that any research supported by the Small Research Grants Program include appropriate research methods. The Small Research Grants are limited funds that can be used up to 1 year.

For Faculty and Staff:

  1. Priority Research Fund (PRF). The Priority Research Fund is designed to a seed grant to support research studies on campus in areas that have been determined to be of high importance to the University. The PRF allows campus researchers to conduct both basic and applied research on these 13 research priority areas using a wide range of methods. It is expected that Priority Grant Fund recipients will submit at least one proposal for external research funding as a result of their funding from the Priority Grant Fund. Students are not eligible to apply.

    Contacts: Information, questions, and grant applications should be submitted via email to rsia@gallaudet.edu. Charles Reilly and Senda Benaissa are the Small Research Grants Program and Priority Research Fund coordinators.

Rachel Hartig Award for Research Excellence recognizes noteworth work created by Undergraduate Faculty and Graduate Students:

Special attention will be accorded to manuscripts under consideration for publication by Gallaudet University Press or already published by the Press. Criteria for the award include innovation in scholarship, clarity of expression, and significance of the subject. Candidates may be nominated by any member of the academic community or may self-nominate, but must provide two letters of support.

The period for submitting nominations and products for the competition is now open until the deadline of January 31. Please send nominations and products to Pilar Piñar, chair of World Languages and Cultures Department. An interdisciplinary screening committee selected by the chair will review the submissions.
