GUIDELINES

Academic Year 2015-2016

All CHAS Faculty Research/Creative Activity Grant applicants within the former College of Humanities and Fine Arts are encouraged, prior to applying, to contact the Office of

Sponsored Programs to discuss additional funding opportunities, including the possibility of using Faculty Research/Creative Activity Grant funding as seed money or matching funds for additional applications (such as to apply for an Iowa Arts Council or

Humanities Iowa Mini Grant).

Project Narrative Structure and Criteria for Evaluation

The application material will:

Be complete, wellwritten, and understandable to people outside one’s field

(unprofessional or poorly prepared applications may be rejected on that basis alone).

Describe project goals and objectives clearly, including how funds will be spent.

Describe how this project advances knowledge in your field.

Provide a detailed, realistic timeline for completion of the project.

Explain why any requested equipment is not currently available for use.

Include a specific total project budget, using the attached form.

Information for Grant Recipients

All funds must be spent between the time an award is granted

and May 31, 2016.

Grant recipients must submit a

follow-up report

of one double-spaced page in length by

May 31, 2016

, summarizing the work accomplished and detailing how the results of the project will be disseminated (publications, exhibition, presentations, and so forth).

Failure to submit the follow-up report will make the recipient ineligible for subsequent CHAS Faculty Research/Creative

Activity Grant consideration.

Any publicity relating to a project awarded a CHAS Faculty Research/Creative

Activity Grant should include recognition of the College’s funding.

Be aware that according to IRS guidelines, items that have a useful life of one year or more become UNI property, or the amount provided by UNI toward the purchase must be reported as taxable income to you and the item then becomes your personal property. The amount provided by the University for personal property will be reported and the tax deducted from your UNI paycheck. A written statement indicating whether the purchase is to become personal or University property must be submitted to the Dean’s office before the funds can be released.
