Research Support & Other Funding

Mount Holyoke is committed to supporting faculty in their research, creative and other professional endeavors.

Internal Funding Support  Through the Office of the Dean of Faculty, the College provides funding to support research and other creative activities undertaken by faculty of Mount Holyoke. This internal grants program is a competitive process utilizing online applications and is overseen by the Faculty Grants Committee.  See the guidelines for eligibility and restrictions.

External Funding Support  The Office of Foundation Relations and Sponsored Research [Grants Office] helps faculty members pursue external funding opportunities from government, foundation, and corporations to support their research efforts as well as to support the College's institutional priorities and initiatives.

Top-Off Funds for Externally-Funded Fellowships For tenure-track faculty who receive prestigious external fellowships that can fund a semester of scholarly leave and do not meet the faculty member's full-time regular base salary, the dean of faculty may provide additional funding to supplement these awards, also known as "top-up" funding.
