The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and the SIU Foundation invite SIU faculty to
seek funds to support scholarly, creative, and research activities. This cycle the goal of the
grant is for SIU faculty to propose innovative work in the Humanities and the Arts. The requested
funding should potentially lead to substantial benefits to the scholarly, creative, and
research activities of the proposer(s).

Projects should promote innovation, leadership, or student success, although student participation
is not required.
