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.

Annual Summer Fellowship Program

The University of Akron annually provides funds for this internal competition.  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.
