Junior tenure-track faculty should start brushing up their resumes because MU Alumni Association grant submissions are due March 4.

The grant, recently renamed the Richard Wallace Research Incentive Grant, gives priority to junior tenure-track faculty.

Marilyn Miller, chairwoman of the award committee, said the grant helps professors begin their research agendas.

Junior professors also use the grant for pilot studies before applying for a larger grant, she said.

It encourages junior faculty to have undergraduates participate in research. Faculty can use the award to pay undergraduate assistants.

Last year, the total amount available for grants dropped to $15,000. This year, the association will offer $30,000, bestowing $2,000 per individual award.

In its 15-year history the association has awarded grants to more than 100 faculty members at MU.
