Internal Opportunities for LSU Faculty

Travel Support Grants

The Office of Research & Economic Development has two internal grant programs to support faculty travel in the service of research. Faculty travel grants provide up to $750 in matching funds for domestic and international travel in support of research related travel. The faculty travel grants are reviewed quarterly. 

The Southeastern Conference also provides travel funds to enable faculty from SEC schools to vist one another for the purpose of developing research collaborations. Applications are accepted in the early spring for the following academic year.

Faculty Research Grant Programs

The Faculty Research Grant program is intended to provide seed funding for new research projects, or to provide resources for major planning grants with the goal of creating opportunities for center-scale funding and groundbreaking research. 

Summer Stipend Program

The Council on Research Summer Stipend program provides a one-month summer appointment ($5,000) to early career researchers seeking support to establish their research portfolio. Faculty who receive the awards are not eligible to teach during any summer session, so that their research time can focus entirely in their funded area.

Equipment Purchase and Repair Programs

The Office of Research & Economic Development administers several programs that support the acquisition and repair of shared equipment and technology. They include:

  • Equipment Repair Fund
  • Equipment Repair and Maintenance Fund for Federally Funded Projects
  • Capital Equipment Match Fund
