Announcing 2017 University Research Council Grants Distinguished Faculty Cohort  

URC Awards

The 2017 distinguished faculty cohort selected to receive 2017 University Research Council Awards were honored at a luncheon hosted by the University Research Council and the Office of Grants and Research Services on April 26.

The summer stipend and research grant competition is one of the most longstanding and competitive sources of faculty development at Seton Hall. To be considered for awards, faculty submit research proposals that are judged by a panel of faculty experts, including senior faculty and previous award winners. This year's honorees received 13 awards, selected from 36 submissions.

Since its inception in the late 1970s, the University Research Council has made more than 300 awards and has been a primary venue for university-sponsored faculty research support. The Office of the Provost, which supports the Council, has increased the funding by about 80 percent during the past three years. The current awardees receive a summer stipend or research grant of $10,000.
