In February 2016, the Carol Lavin Bernick Family Foundation, whose generous support of Tulane University built the iconic and award-winning Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life, pledged $5 million to support Tulane’s faculty.
The gift provides $1 million annually over five years for department and faculty needs in research, recruitment, development, continuing education and student engagement with grants to individual full-time faculty members up to $15,000 per year.
Faculty members can apply for any of the following grants: 360 Degree Courses, Course/Teaching Grants, Interdisciplinary Faculty Workgroups, Research Bridge Grants, Research Conference Travel, Research Support, and Other.
Applications for the 2017-2018 academic year were due March 10, 2017 and awardees were notified starting April 24, 2017. 160 applications were received, totaling approximately $1.5 million. 120 grants were awarded, totaling $994,487. The majority of the awards were from the category of Research Support.
