Faculty Emeritus Research Fund

The Faculty Emeritus Research Fund is available to support TCU emeritus faculty who remain active in research beyond their formal duties at the University.  These rules/guidelines apply:

  • Awards must be approved in advance of project expenditures.
  • No more than one award will be made to an individual in any given academic year.  Priority will be given to those who have not previously received an award.
  • The maximum award is $1,000.
  • Use of TCU facilities must be approved by the Emeritus department chair.

Funds are limited; awards will be determined by project merit and potential benefit to TCU.  Applications must be complete, including all requested signatures, and may be submitted to the Provost’s Office in Sadler Hall.

Current deadline:  There is no current call for applications.  The award periods are June 1 through May 31.
The application deadline is generally in early May.

Residual awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis through the fiscal year, as funding allows, and must be spent by May 31.
