Research Enhancement Program (REP)

The deadline for applications for the 2017 - 2018 Research Enhancement Program (REP) has been extended through Wednesday, October 4, 2017. Applications are submitted using the TWU SharePoint site.  Please refer to the REP Guidelines when completing your application.  Proposals submitted to the REP will be reviewed by the Research Support Committee which will make funding recommendations to the Vice Provost for Research.

The primary purpose of the Research Enhancement Program is to provide seed money (up to $10,000) so that faculty members will be able to compete more successfully for larger research grants from external sources for continuation of their research. The REP provides support for all types of faculty research. All full-time tenured faculty, research faculty, and tenure-track faculty members at TWU are eligible to apply and serve as PI and co-investigators.  Tenured and research faculty will be evaluated separately from tenure-track faculty who are not yet tenured (thus considered a "new investigator") with funds being designated separately for each group. Competitions are held twice a year and applications are currently being accepted for the fall 2017 competition. 

A list of grantees for this competition may be found here.
