ENHANCE CAS

About the program

The ENHANCE CAS funding program supports the research, scholarship, and creative activities of faculty members from disciplines with less substantial start-up funds and limited extramural funding opportunities.  

  • Humanities and Social Science faculty members (e.g. tenured, tenure-track, research, prof. of practice)
  • Maximum $5,000. Funding is limited and awarded on a competitive basis.
  • Two rounds of awards are considered each year with the following deadline dates: September 30; March 15.

Funding is valid upon notification of the award and available for one year from the notification date.
