Support for Specialized Services

The School provides funding for specialized research services and supplemental funding for existing projects. To request financial support a written request should be submitted to the Dean which outlines the specific details of the request, estimated cost and justification.

Specialized services include but are not limited to the following activities:

  • Faculty training
  • Statistical consultation
  • Editing and proof-reading services
  • Specialized software
  • Transcription
  • Supplemental funding to existing research projects
  • Pilot project funding (a mini-proposal would be required).


The School provides all faculty with a $1,000 annual discretionary fund.  It should be noted that this allocation is dependent upon budget availability.

The School supports the attendance to one academic conference (for presenters).  Financial support includes, airfare (or mileage reimbursement), two nights hotel, and per diem for meals.
