Law Faculty Initiatives Fund

Faculty are invited to submit proposals for new initiatives and projects. Approved projects are funded by the Faculty Initiatives Fund Program. If approved, you will be contacted by the FIF Coordinator to review your project's needs and budget.

The Faculty Initiatives Fund provides support for faculty-driven projects that advance the Law School's mission. The program is intended to foster a broad range of initiatives. Faculty may seek funding for any project, program, or event that enhances teaching, student learning, faculty scholarship, and intellectual life or that creates engagement with scholarly communities, the legal profession, or the broader community. The size of individual grants will depend on the nature of the proposed initiative. There is no absolute limit on award size, but funding for a proposal will not typically exceed $7,500. Preference will be given to projects that are jointly submitted or that benefit many members of our community.


Priority of consideration for each academic year cycle will be given to proposals received by October 1 of the academic year in which funding is sought.. Proposals received after the priority deadline will be considered on a rolling basis until the end of the academic year as long as funds remain available.
