Welcome to the Fulton School Grants webpage. The Fulton School encourages all faculty members to consider applying for appropriate and promising grant opportunities. The pursuit of grants is a strategic priority of the Fulton School. This page is designed to help Fulton faculty become familiar with our funding landscape, and the many opportunities available for a wide range of research and projects.

The purpose and value of grants

Wicomico County Teachers

Grants support research and/or research-related travel. They can also make the most ambitious research projects possible. Grants support academic events—from lectures and performances, to conferences and study abroad programs—that might otherwise be difficult or impossible to accomplish without such funding. Grants can also be used to acquire new teaching skills, develop new courses, or even offer courses that carry unusual costs. Other benefits include: Advancing knowledge in the faculty member’s field, enhancing the teaching and learning experience of faculty and students, and contributing to the SU academic community and mission. Grants come in all amounts, and even the smallest grants can leverage much larger ones down the road. It all starts, though, with identifying a grant opportunity that is right for one’s project and then pursuing it.

SMARTS/GENIUS. SMARTS brings information about external grant opportunities right to one’s email. All you need to do is register, set keywords that help target the types of grant opportunities in which you might be interested, and then receive and read the SMARTS emails that come your way (as often as daily, depending on the breadth of the keywords you set). After that, it’s just a matter of choosing to apply for X grant and doing so. Smarts/Genius Database
