Dean of Faculty Grant Activities Fund

Hamilton College supports the ongoing engagement of its faculty members as researchers in their disciplines because we believe that our students are well served by the insights these faculty members can bring to their classrooms and by the awareness of contemporary developments in the field that these faculty members can share with their students. The Grant Activity Fund (GAF) provides support for individual faculty grant proposals to external agencies. The purpose of the fund is to encourage proposal development, strengthen submissions and to demonstrate institutional support for proposed activities. These funds may also be used to supplement salary for full-year periodic leaves.  Learn more ...
