Supporting FT Faculty Research Projects

Reflecting the Catholic, Spiritan mission and identity of Duquesne University, the Paluse Faculty Research Grant is an important university-wide internal funding opportunity intended to support full-time faculty scholarly research. 

Grant awards are for up to $6,000. Up to two awards will be granted.

  • Open to all full-time Duquesne faculty in any academic discipline with continuing full-time faculty appointments.
  • Intended to lead, at least, to publication in a reputable peer-reviewed journal.
  • Can be used to support a portion of a multi-phase research project, provided the project funded by the Paluse grant is clearly defined and the proposal makes a strong case for the likelihood of future external funding and publication.
  • Faculty are encouraged to pursue collaborative and cross-disciplinary research projects and to submit them for Paluse funding.
  • Recipients may teach no more than one summer course for supplementary pay during the summer they hold the grant.
  • Previous winners of Paluse Faculty Research Grants are welcome to apply. Proposals must demonstrate research outcomes from previous grants, and applications must show that the current proposal focuses on a new research project.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have not received a Paluse Faculty Research Grant in the last two years.
