The Office of the Vice Provost for Research is pleased to announce this year’s grant awards for the Faculty Research Investment Program and Young Investigator Development Program. These funding mechanisms provide grants of up to $25,000 to support faculty research projects in any academic area with the objective of helping investigators compete successfully for external research funding. The FRIP program is open to any full time Baylor faculty member, while the YIDP program is limited to tenure-track faculty members in the first four years of their appointment.
For the 2014 fiscal year, two projects received funding under the FRIP program and one under the YIDP. The three projects each represent a different college or school, reflecting the breadth of research activity across the university.
Please join the OVPR in congratulating each of this year’s FRIP and YIDP grant recipients!
