Faculty Seed Money Awards
The Faculty Seed Money (FSM) Committee strongly affirms the value of all forms of scholarship and the scholarly contributions of all academic disciplines to the intellectual life of a comprehensive research university. The FSM program is designed to enhance the ability of faculty to submit successful extramural grant applications. Faculty seeking support for projects that are not designed to produce extramural grant applications are encouraged to apply for other sources of support. These include the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee (SSAC) New Scholar Award; SSAC Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity Award; SSAC Travel Awards; and others.
The Faculty Seed Money Committee distributes funds to support projects by faculty in any department of the University. Applicants must have a full-time faculty appointment at UND.
Faculty who have previously received Faculty Seed Money awards must have a final report on file with Research Development and Compliance (Room 105 Twamley; Stop 7134) in order to be considered for an award.
Faculty who have previously received funds from the Seed Money Committee and who wish to apply for additional support must present evidence that they have submitted a related extramural research proposal since receiving Committee funds. (An extramural application is one submitted to an agency or foundation "outside UND." Thus, for example, proposals sent to the following are not extramural: UND Instructional Development, NRI, RD&C, SSAC and North Dakota EPSCoR). The new application must describe how the previous Seed Money Award was used and what applications or related publications resulted.
For application format, review criteria and other information related to the Faculty Seed Money Awards, please see: http://und.edu/research/research-economic-development/faculty-research-seed-money.cfm

ND EPSCOR - Graduate Student Research Assistantship (GSRA) Program
This program helps increase opportunities for students from the North Dakota University System baccalaureate universities and ND tribal colleges to pursue graduate degrees at North Dakota's two research universities in the areas of science, engineering and mathematics.
The ND EPSCoR monthly stipend is $1,500/month for up to a 24-month period. Departments may supplement the stipend. Use of the assistantship through the summer is expected. A UND awardee is expected to be enrolled in six credit hours.
ND EPSCoR provides the host department up to $2,000 to help offset costs of an awardee's research activities, including conference travel and journal publication. In the second year, it is expected that the awardee will devote 100% time to coursework and thesis research, and have no teaching responsibilities. Participation in this program does not affect eligibility for the ND EPSCoR Doctoral Dissertation Award program. The thesis or dissertation advisor is required to submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation during the term of the GSRA award.
