Research

The Office of the Vice President for Arts and Sciences funds two sources of budget support for research:

The Faculty Research Allowance Program (FRAP) supports research for instructors in full-time professorial and lecturer ranks. The program provides support to faculty members in the following categories of research-related expenses:

Travel Expenses
Manuscript Preparation Expenses
Equipment Purchases

If you have any questions or need more information regarding FRAP, please contact Marisa Nunez, Manager, Budget Operations, at mn2294@columbia.edu or at (212) 854-6080.

The Tenured Faculty Research Program (TFRP) offers tenured faculty annually the equivalent of one-ninth of their academic year salary. The TFRP allocation may be used either toward a paid leave with salary or for research assistance. The 2014-2015 Application Form should be returned to the Office of the Vice President for Arts and Sciences, 635 West 115th street, by March 31, 2014.

If you have any questions or need more information regarding TFRP, please contact Joseph Werst, Director, Academic Appointments and Payroll, at jw19@columbia.edu or at (212) 854-6110.
