Office of Research and Sponsored Projects
The University of West Georgia (UWG) broadly defines research as all scholarly and creative activities engaged in by faculty, staff and students. This definition includes such research activities as conducting experimental studies and surveys, developing and performing new works in the creative arts, developing new works or approaches in the humanities, developing curriculum, participating in public service, and applying the results of previous research. Conducting these activities effectively often requires funding from internal (within the university) and/or external (outside the University) sources. Faculty members may need funding to provide time off to pursue a project or the assistance of additional staff and/or specialized equipment to conduct the research. The project may require travel and supplies beyond what the department can reasonably provide. For all of these reasons and many more, faculty and staff may need funds to help defray the costs of their research activities.
