Supplemental Funding Request Form

As described in the Faculty Handbook (Section II.P), faculty members at Williams are provided with annual funding allowances for allowable expenses. In addition, a number of fellowship and grant competitions provide opportunities for substantial awards, and some departments and programs have funds to support faculty scholarship. Faculty members are also encouraged to seek outside funding in support of their research. More information on finding internal and external funding can be found on the External and Internal Funding Sources page. The Grants Office staff can also be of assistance.

When all budgeted sources of faculty, department, or program funds have been exhausted or otherwise committed, the Dean of Faculty can sometimes make modest supplemental awards, depending on the nature of the request and the availability of discretionary funds or suitable endowments. Common requests are for travel to a conference, or for publication fees, and awards typically range from $500-$2500. Other research expenses are sometimes supported as well, but this funding is limited and not sufficient for major funding requests.

Please fill out the form below to request consideration for a funding supplement. Your request will automatically be forwarded to the Dean of Faculty’s Office. Please allow two to three weeks for a response.
