Research Resources

  • New Faculty General Research Fund

    The New Faculty General Research Fund Program (NFGRF) has been designed to help new tenure-track faculty members accelerate their individual scholarship and assist in building a sustainable research program. It is our hope that new faculty members will view this program as an excellent opportunity to jump-start their research efforts soon after their arrival on campus.

  • KU Strategic Initiatives

    KU’s four strategic initiative themes offer stellar opportunities to enhance our research excellence and visibility by addressing emerging and escalating grand challenges of crucial significance both for Kansas and globally.

  • Office of Research

    The University of Kansas Office of Research advocates for research, implements research integrity requirements, and, through the KU Center for Research (KUCR), manages the administration of research grants and contracts.
