2001-2002 President's Faculty Grant Winners

This year, there were 28 submissions from 51 faculty members representing 10 academic units in the competition. From this cohort, ten President's Faculty Scholarship Awards were given to 21 faculty members representing ten academic units for a total of $46,000. In addition to this sum of money, the deans of these schools and centers matched the $46,000 figure to bring the grand total of support for faculty research and scholarship to $92,000. The two-year total for awards given now stands at $172,000.
