Internal Funding Update

During FY17, the University Research Council awarded more than $222,000 to provide funding for project support, travel to disseminate research, publication in peer-reviewed journals, and for other research and creative activities. Some of the funded projects this year include:

Dr. Michael Maurer, Department of Agriculture: Establishment of Turfgrass from Seed and Sod in Sand-Based Systems Combining Sprinkler and Subsurface Drip Irrigation

Dr. Flora Farago, School of Human Sciences: How, When, and Why Early Childhood Educators Talk about Race with Young Children?

Dr. Luis Aguerrevere, Department of Psychology: Effects of Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) on Pain-Related Variables

Dr. Vjetha Koppa, Department of Economics & Finance: Do Housing Vouchers Reduce Domestic Violence? Evidence from a Lottery

Dr. Matibur Zamadar, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry: The Preparation of Tin Porphyrin-Ruthenium Complex for Targeting Tumor Hyooxi

By June 2017, all of this year’s funds were awarded. The total funding amount for FY18 has been slightly reduced due to budget cuts. There will be new applications and updated guidelines for the upcoming FY18 year. Please watch our website and SFA Today for an announcement when these materials are available.
