AY 2022–2023 Award Cycle

The Research Council Awards program offers five annual award opportunities to support faculty research and especially to encourage scholarship tackling challenging disciplinary problems in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts. The council has proudly been providing internal awards to the Rutgers faculty for the past 79 consecutive years.

The Individual Fulcrum Awards Program is tailored to individual researchers and those in the creative arts who are testing out new ideas to accelerate their scientific inquiry, program of research and scholarship, or creative production.

The Social and Racial Justice Awards Program supports academic research on racial and social justice in all domains of intellectual, social, artistic, and environmental life. 

The Collaborative Multidisciplinary Awards Program offers the opportunity for a group of faculty members across disciplines to work together on a new, shared problem or line of research.

The Subvention Program for the Publication of Scholarly Books provides partial subsidies to university and other highly regarded scholarly presses to cover a portion of the cost of publishing a scholarly book.

The Manuscript Review Award, new for the 2022 funding cycle, helps faculty members publish authoritative, thought-provoking, field-changing books.
