For Faculty

Internal funding options

Internal funding opportunities for Norwich faculty include endowed programs such as the Faculty Development Program under the oversight of the Faculty Senate, the Chase Scholarship Initiative Program under the oversight of the SVPAA and Dean of the Faculty, and the Recovered Indirect Cost Program supported from external grants and managed by the AVPR.

External funding options

The Office of Academic Research provides support for faculty seeking external funding for research in the form of a full time Director of Sponsored Programs who offers both pre- and post-award support. Faculty are encouraged to develop their tailored Request for Proposals notification system by working with Mina Peshavaria ( to get set up with access to the SPIN database that includes announcements from more than 10,000 global sponsors.
