The purpose of the RSC is to encourage research and creative activity by UNK faculty and graduate students. The RSC places special emphasis on seed grants for projects potentially leading to external funding, projects that demonstrate the potential for publication or other appropriate forms of dissemination, and projects that involve students in the research enterprise.

All UNK faculty and graduate students are eligible to apply for RSC funding.  Funds are not provided to support faculty research that is part of degree requirements (e.g., dissertation) or on-going projects where funding has previously been provided.  All RSC programs are competitive, and not all proposals can be funded.  It is expected that all faculty proposals will include funding from sources other than the RSC (e.g. department, college, other).  When applications exceed available funds, the first order of priority for awards will be to those tenured or tenure track faculty working toward tenure, graduate faculty status or promotion as verified by their professional development plans. Furthermore, faculty without previous RSC support will be given priority. RSC research grant funds may not be used to pay for registration or expenses related to attendance and participation in professional conferences, workshops, or clinics.
