The Summer Excellence in Research Program for Faculty


The Summer Excellence in Research Program for Faculty (SEiR-F) promotes high-quality research efforts for Culverhouse faculty by providing funding for their summer research. Funds may be taken as a summer stipend and/or used to reduce the costs of the proposed research.

In order to be awarded an SEiR-F grant, the faculty must engage in research efforts that:

  1. Have clear potential for high impact on business and/or society
  2. Result in the submission of a manuscript to a high-quality, peer-reviewed academic journal and/or submission of a proposal for research funding to a recognized grant agency (federal, state, foundation, or private industry).

Each semester, the faculty members who received grants through the SEiR-F program will give presentations of their supported research.

What Is Explained:

  • Research supported by the SEiR-F grant
  • Portions of the research that needs to be completed
  • Potential impact of research on business and/or society
  • Targeted outcome of the research
    • The journal to which it will be submitted
    • The agency to which a proposal will be submitted

Presentation Details:

Where: Alston Hall Parlor, 4th floor
