The Faculty Research and Professional Development (FRPD) program is a funding partnership between the Office of Research and Innovation (ORI) and the 10 academic colleges. Funding is available on a competitive basis as outlined in the Request for Proposals link below.

The Spring 2020 (FY2021) cycle has recently closed; however, you may review the documents and college due dates to get an idea of what will be required for the next cycle.

The Spring 2021 (FY2022) is anticipated to be announced in January 2021.


College Contacts and Due Dates

The only eligibility requirement set by the ORI is that the recipient must hold a faculty position at NC State. Colleges set their own due dates and may set additional eligibility requirements. These due dates will be updated as ORI receives them. If you have questions about your college’s requirements, please contact the individual listed below or your Associate Dean for Research.
