Research Opportunities for Faculty

TUJ faculty members are encouraged to engage in active research programs and limited funding is available from the TUJ Research Fund to support this work. Additional funding opportunities are available through Temple University and outside funding sources. For questions related to research funding and eligibility, please contact us via e-mail at tujresearch@tuj.temple.edu.

Faculty Senate Seed Money Fund (FSSMF)

The Faculty Senate Seed Money Fund (FSSMF), administered by the Faculty Senate Research Programs and Policies Committee (RPPC), provides funding to full-time faculty for scholarly and creative projects/research activities that are expected to prepare faculty to attract external funding or recognition to Temple University. Funds awarded under the FSSMF are to be used to facilitate the development of a proposal to be submitted to an external funding source or to support a project that has been approved but not funded by an external source and which needs revision for resubmission. On rare occasions, a project that contributes significantly to Temple University's academic mission may be funded even if no outside funding can be expected. The FSSMF does not support the primary investigator, a collaborator, or a student whose project work leads to an academic degree.

College of Health Professions Innovation in Teaching Grant

The purpose of the Innovation in Teaching Grant (ITG) is to enhance the scholarship of teaching in the College of Health Professions. The Dean invites applications from faculty who will use the funds to develop proposals that will yield innovative teaching methods or materials, books, book chapters, training grants or contracts, or articles in refereed journals regarding teaching innovation.
