Arthur Vining Davis Foundation Grant

About the Grant

Lincoln University is pleased to announce that thanks to a proposal submitted by President Brenda A. Allen, Lincoln University was awarded $250,000 from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation. This support will allow us to extend our Summer Faculty Institutes and curriculum workshops to social science and STEM faculty. 

Social Science and STEM faculty may apply each grant year.  The grant years are 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. Awarded grant funds are for research and academic writing for scholarly publications.  Awarded faculty will employ an undergraduate research assistant to engage in research and professional development. Please see below for the grant overview, guidelines, and proposal application and submission process. Tenure-line and tenured social science and STEM faculty are eligible to apply; junior faculty are particularly encouraged to apply.
