The Faculty Development and Research (FDR) grants program, is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and managed by the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research.

The FDR Committee is made up of faculty representing all the university colleges and they are responsible for reviewing applications and making decisions of grant awards.

ESU faculty can apply in three grant categories: the Start It Grant (formerly the Mini Grant), the Grow It Grant. (formerly the Major Grant), and new this year, the Finish It Grant.

The FDR grant program provides funding to ESU faculty members to further their professional development.

The FDR program's focus is on emphasizing the inclusion of undergraduate and graduate student researchers as well as leveraging external grants and interdisciplinary research.

All grant proposals must be submitted online via the University's grant application software: ESU eGRANTS. Register yourself in the portal today.

Review the 2021-2022 FDR Guidelines for application and submission instructions.
