Resources for Research

Conducting and disseminating research is a central responsibility of tenure-eligible and tenured faculty in A&S. We support innovative and impactful research across the curriculum, including research with students

Funding for Research

If you are a new faculty member, you may have access to start-up funds to support research-related expenses. Your department or program may also have dedicated funding for which you can apply. In addition, there are a number of other sources on campus to support faculty research:

Scheduled Semester Research Leave (SSRL)

Research-active tenured faculty are entitled to a Scheduled Semester Research Leave every seventh year, starting the first year after tenure is awarded. Departments and programs each have their own criteria for determining eligibility for an SSRL.

External Grants

The Office of Sponsored Programs supports faculty applying for external grants, and manages grant money when it comes in. They welcome inquiries from new and established faculty.

Research in D.C.

The W&M Washington Center has a list of library resources in the D.C. area that are accessible to W&M Faculty.
