This post contains the list of successful Faculty Support Grant applications for the February application cycle. (Anyone interested in the results of a student grant application should contact me directly.)

AUC is proud of its Faculty Support Grant program, which ranks among the most generous of any university in the world. In addition to looking for your own grant on the list below, please take a few minutes to read through some of the other interesting research topics and conference trips of your AUC colleagues. Enhancing mutual recognition of faculty research is one of the motivations for listing successful grant applicants here in the Bulletin.

If you see any mistaken information in the list, including minor spelling errors in any names, please contact me immediately at gharman@aucegypt.edu. We aspire to have a completely accurate list for each grant cycle.

Official letters of approval will be sent to everyone shortly. However, please note the following two points:

1. My assistant, Nancy, has been asked to help organize the March 31 Commencement Ceremony, and this needs to be her top priority at the moment. This could lead to delays of several days in processing your grant letters.

2. At the request of the Payroll Office, we will no longer be sending approval letters for Conference Grants that have been approved “pending acceptance of paper.” The new policy is that we need to see your acceptance letter from the conference before issuing the approval letter, or at least see your name on the official conference schedule.
