The following list includes faculty grants only. Graduate student grants are now handled exclusively by Dr. Amr Shaarawi, Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies. Please contact Dr. Shaarawi’s office for news about the status of applications for Graduate Student Grants.

In some cases, adjustments have been made to the requested budgets; please do not assume that you have received the full amount requested.

My office will process the checks for the following grants as quickly as we can, but please allow some time for this to happen, since there is a very heavy workload for my assistant (Nancy Wadie) once the grant decisions are made. If you have not yet provided a letter of acceptance from the conference for which you have received a grant, please note that no check will be issued until we receive such a letter.

If you see any typographical or other errors, or if you believe yourself to be wrongly missing from this list, please contact me immediately at
