$740,000 Awarded to 13 Faculty in Research Growth Awards

The Saint Louis University Research Institute will award more than $740,000 in grants in its second round of funding to accelerate research growth at the University.

Launched in September 2018 through the largest gift received in the history of SLU, given generously by Dr. Jeanne and Rex Sinquefield, the SLU Research Institute furthers SLU’s goal of becoming the world’s leading Jesuit research university.

13 Proposals Funded

The Research Institute invited SLU faculty to submit proposals that would propel SLU’s research forward. Over 70 proposals were submitted, and 13 were selected to receive funding from the Research Growth Fund.

This is the second round of grants to be awarded through the Research Growth Fund. The first round of grant recipients was announced in January. Fifteen faculty members were awarded a total of $1.8 million.

The Research Growth Fund is designed to be a flexible source of funding for faculty across the University to help achieve their research and scholarship ambitions and make progress towards the goals of the Research Institute .

More information on the process and the grant recipients from the first round can be found here.
