Faculty Research Grant & Healey Endowment Grant
The University of Massachusetts Amherst Office of Research Development, under the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement, administers the Faculty Research Grant (FRG) and Healey Endowment Grant (HEG) program. This internal grant program exists to promote scholarly research and creative activities. Full-time UMass Amherst faculty members, whose appointments extend beyond the current academic year, are eligible to submit applications. Junior members of the faculty are especially encouraged to apply. The goal of the awards is to support new or early stage research and creative activity that will lead to the ability to attract external funding as well as to produce journal publications or scholarly books that will enhance the researcher’s reputation and research profile. More information on the FRG and HEG is found in the application, available in the "Downloads" area on the side of this page.
