Faculty Research and Professional Development Program (FRPD)

FRPD is a funding partnership between the Office of Research and Innovation (ORI) and the 10 academic colleges. The primary objective of this program is to provide seed funding to individual investigators — to jumpstart larger awards and grants from outside agencies.


The only eligibility requirement set by ORI is that the recipient must hold a faculty position at NC State. However, your college may set additional eligibility requirements (see more below).


College Contacts and Due Dates

Each college sets its own due dates, which are updated as ORI receives them. If you have questions about your college’s eligibility requirements or due dates, please contact the individual listed below or your Associate Dean for Research.
