2014 OVPR Grants

Funded Proposals

The Office of Research received 50 applications to the OVPR Grants to Catalyze External Funding Program, requesting a total of $431,591. We made 14 awards totaling $99,555, with an additional $15,000 committed from the Graduate Dean’s summer graduate assistants stipend fund account. Grants were reviewed with the primary underlying criterion of catalyzing new external research funding opportunities at Kennesaw State University. Proposals that were recommended for funding met this criterion the best. Please click on the link above to see the list of this year's awardees.

Thank you to everyone who applied. We had many deserving proposals that went unfunded due to a lack of resources.
