Internal Grants


Bloomsburg University Internal Grants and Competitions

Bloomsburg University promotes transformative learning on campus by encouraging faculty and student research, scholarly, and creative activities through the Faculty On-Campus (FOC) Grant Program. The FOC Grant Program offers directed opportunities for faculty professional development in all disciplines. With limited funding and an active scholarly community, the FOC Grant Program is intended for new faculty starting research, creative, and scholarly projects or established faculty who request support for professional development. To be successful and available to all faculty when need arises, the program supports, as much as it is possible, the development of initiatives and programs that become sustainable through external funding (e.g., revenue, external grants and contracts).

Descriptions of competitions and projects are provided in Faculty On-Campus Grant Proposal Guidelines and Procedures.
