The following list includes only faculty grants. Graduate student grants are now handled exclusively by Dr. Amr Shaarawi, Dean of Graduate Studies. Please contact Dean Shaarawi’s office for news about graduate student grant applications.

My office will process the checks for the following grants as quickly as we can, but please allow some time for processing, 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 a conference for which you have received a grant, no check will be issued until we receive such a letter.
