Internal Funding Opportunities
Institutional Level Pilot Funding
Deadline: Every November
At Kent State University, there are many sources of pilot funding that faculty can apply for to aid in their research and creative activities.
In 2021, Institutional Level Pilot Funding is provided through the Institutes (AMLCI, AREI, BHRI, EDRI, HCRI) and the University Research Council (URC). To best steward limited funding for pilot studies, the Division of Research and Economic Development (RAED) centralized certain aspects of these different funding mechanisms, standardized the timing of some opportunities, and created efficiencies when one is applying for both institute and URC funding. For information about the upcoming year, please visit the RAED website below.
