Division of Research - PESCA Grant Program


The Division of Research funds the Program to Enhance Scholarly and Creative Activities (PESCA) Grant Program to support significant research and scholarly projects that have the potential to lead to the awarding of external funding by agencies and endowments such as major federal research funding agencies, national endowments, institutes, foundations, and councils. A variety of activities are eligible for funding including travel for research and to collections and libraries, access to data resources, graduate student support, and seed funding to support application for federal and other national-level grants.
