Start-Up Support for New Faculty

The Start-Up Fund is an allocation awarded to a new member of the faculty to provide the resources needed to help establish a scholarly research program. The financial resources from the Start-Up Fund are made available to the faculty member as agreed upon in the individual's letter of appointment.

Each year, the Vice President for Research, in consultation with College and School Deans, will determine the allocation of these funds for each department.

The Guidelines provide more information on the requirements and process for this support.
