President's Faculty Research & Development Grant

In support of the University’s mission, and to recognize and support NSU faculty in their research endeavors, President Ray Ferrero, Jr. initiated the President's Faculty Scholarship Award Program in 1999. Early in its inception, the program was renamed the President’s Faculty Research and Development Grant (PFRDG) program. Today, PFRDG continues to directly support Vision 2020’s research-focused core values and strategic priorities by providing seed money for new research areas for which external funding will be sought, or to move current research initiatives to new levels of competitiveness for external funding. Because PFRDG leverages significant university resources to grow externally funded research activities, the program receives a considerable level of attention and support from the University's administration. 

Fifty percent of each PFRDG award is funded from the interest generated from this investment, and the other fifty percent comes directly from the winning faculty members' academic units; these funds represent new allocations for faculty development, and do not diminish existing resources for faculty support in the unit. 

Funding is prioritized for work that:

  1. represents new or expanded research and development activity for the university;
  2. falls within both the university’s and the academic unit’s identity, goals and mission;
  3. expands the knowledge and understanding of the academic community;
  4. is disseminated, through professional review, outside of the university;
  5. will provide seed money for a new research area for which external funding will be sought; or
  6. will move an existing research project to a new level of competitiveness for external funding.
Congratulations to all 2017-2018 Winners!
