Faculty Research Mentoring Program

2020-2021 Faculty Research Mentoring Program

Sponsored and administered by the Office of Sponsored Programs, now in its fourth 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 Montclair State University 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 full, competitive research proposal with the mentee as the principal investigator.

This year’s round of the Faculty Research Mentoring Program will fund up to three awards.

Below please find guidelines and applications. All applications are required to be submitted via Cayuse 424 ( Submission instructions can be found in the guidelines.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that his/her application is complete, routed and approved by all necessary individuals via Cayuse 424 by February 7, 2020.
