Faculty Research Mentoring Program


‌Sponsored and administered by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP), now in its second year, the Faculty Research Mentoring Program is designed to foster the exchange of ideas and best practices in funded research. More specifically, we hope the Faculty Research Mentoring Program will provide:

  • support and guidance to faculty members primarily in the areas of grant preparation and submission; and
  • a professional and confidential relationship where ideas can be exchanged, feedback can be provided and skills can be enhanced.

The Program will support two MSU faculty members—one with significant extramural funding experience (mentor), and one tenure-track faculty member who wishes to be mentored. As a culminating requirement of the award, the pair will submit a collaborative proposal with the mentee as the principal investigator.

Successful pairs will be awarded $1500—$1000 for the mentor and $500 for the mentee. This year's round of the Faculty Research Mentoring Program will fund up to three awards.

The deadline for submitting and application is March 15, 2018.
