Faculty Development Grant Program logo with a striped green background and UAB logoThe UAB Faculty Development Grant Program (FDGP) provides seed money for research, scholarship, and creative activities in a faculty member’s discipline by providing funds to undertake new efforts for which money is not generally available. Early career Instructors, Assistant Professors, and mid-career Associate Professors, in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Arts, Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences with a full-time faculty appointment without funding of $100,000 per year are eligible to apply. FDGP funding enables faculty to develop manuscripts, publications, presentations, grant applications, future research initiatives, creative works, scholarly activity, and new skills to enhance peer recognition outside of UAB.
