Faculty Research Committee

The Faculty Research Committee (FRC) is a standing committee of the Faculty Senate.  FRC members represent each of the colleges and are appointed by the Executive Committee.

Ohio Supercomputer (OSC) Fellowship Program

The goal of the OSC Fellowship Program is to provide current or new UA OSC users a temporary source of funds (in FY19 and FY20) while they apply for funds through normal grant application processes to other agencies.  This internal funding program is being administered by the Faculty Research Committee with assistance from the Office of Research Administration.  The application deadline for this year’s competition is January 25, 2019.  Please refer to the RFP and Coversheet documents to apply.

Annual Summer Fellowship Program

The University of Akron annually provides funds for this internal competition.  All full-time faculty are encouraged to apply, and proposals from all disciplines are welcome! 

Proposals are evaluated and selected for funding by the FRC.  Historically, 20% of submitted proposals are funded.
