The Committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and be specific and realistic in their budget requests. The proposal should be written with a multidisciplinary readership in mind. Avoid technical jargon and undefined abbreviations. Although the SSAC encourages submission of research/creative activity proposals and travel/publication requests, the Committee takes into consideration the most recent SSAC awards granted to each applicant. Priority will be given to beginning faculty and first-time applicants. Requests for research/creative activity awards may not exceed $2,500. The Committee receives requests for funding that far exceed funds available for awards; therefore, please prepare your application carefully.
Application forms are available on UND’s Homepage under “Research”. A properly signed original of the application must be submitted to the Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development, Twamley 103, prior to or on the published deadline. A PDF is also required for Research Creative Activity and New Faculty Scholar applications. The PDF should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Late applications will not be accepted. Applications that are not prepared in accordance with the directions on the forms will not be considered by the Committee. Please feel free to contact any of the current SSAC members for information or guidance when preparing your application. Their names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses are available on the SSAC Homepage or by calling Julie Solheim at 7-4278.
