Research and Sponsored Programs

University Research Funding Opportunities

The annual internal grant programs administered by Research and Sponsored Programs support the diverse range of faculty research and scholarship at UToledo. We hope that full-time, tenured and tenure-track faculty from all disciplines will find a program that could help advance their scholarly efforts. Guidance for these programs is provided by the University Research Council.

One of the five goals identified by UToledo strategic plan is "to increase externally funded research, research expenditures and embrace the importance of faculty scholarship.”  Consistent with this goal, faculty members are expected to engage in research and scholarship. Although external funds are important and critical to support much of this activity, the University recognizes that this is not always possible. Hence, the University hopes that, by supporting meritorious projects, it will stimulate new research and scholarly endeavors, support new faculty in developing on-going programs of research and scholarship, and help senior faculty move in new directions. These awards also provide support to help faculty gather the preliminary data that will enhance their ability to receive external competitive awards.
