Application Guidelines

Goal: To provide current USC faculty with additional funds to cover any justifiable research related expense not already covered by other sources that will advance the WiSE Program goals of increasing the representation of women in science and engineering.

Eligibility: Tenured or tenure-track faculty, full-time research faculty, and lecturers in WiSE-eligible departments may apply directly for research grants anytime during the academic year. Applications should be made at least 30 days before funding is desired.

Application and Selection Process: An application should be submitted using the online system that includes:

  • A brief description of how the funds will be used
  • How this use advances the WiSE Program goals of increasing the representation of women in science and engineering.
  • A short, itemized budget must accompany the request

 

Awards will be made for any justifiable research related expense not already covered by other sources, within availability of WiSE funds in this category. Please note that WiSE funds through this program cannot be applied to faculty summer salary. Funds will be disbursed to applicant through normal faculty accounts.
