Since 1996, the MTSU Foundation has awarded annual funding for special projects pursued by a full-time faculty member at the University. After input from University administration and faculty, and in an effort to strengthen the award and make it more significant, the Special Projects Committee will be revising the award's selection process and criteria over the next year and significantly increase the monetary award up to $50,000. During this transformative review, the Foundation will suspend the Special Projects Award program for fiscal year 2019.
Beginning in fiscal year 2020, the revised Special Project Award program will provide up to $50,000 in the funding to enhance opportunities for faculty. Eligibility, timelines, and guidelines for the new 2020 Special Projects program will be forthcoming in the coming months. Please check back for updates.
