Academic Computing Committee Grant Program
Tim England, Chair

An Overview:

Usually about $500,000, originating from the student computing fee, is made available by the Office of the Vice President for Informational Technology (VPIT) to provide for the enhancement of computing resources and technology available to Texas State students. The Academic Computing Committee (ACC), under the authority of the University Faculty Senate, is charged with the responsibility of soliciting and evaluating proposals. Proposals are invited from entities funded by Texas State University.

The Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued campus-wide in early December. Guidelines are provided in the RFP. Those choosing to submit a request may obtain forms from their ACC representative.

College representatives are appointed by the Faculty Senate, and their names and e-mail addresses are listed in the RFP. The deadline for submitting proposals is toward the end of January. The ACC evaluates the proposals and makes it recommendations in February.

Both employees and students may submit, so long as the submitter is submitting a request on behalf of an entity funded by the university.

Library Research Grants
Joan Heath, Chair

Call for Proposals

Faculty members who need materials not in the library collection to support their research are invited to submit a proposal for a Library Research Grant. Each year the Alkek Library provides funds to acquire non-curricular materials for this purpose. Although the review process is competitive, most professionally written proposals have been funded in recent years.

$20,000 in funding is available. Proposals over $3,000 are unlikely to receive full funding.
Materials requested may include books, back issues of journals, electronic resources, AV materials, computer software.

Requests should not include current subscriptions, journal articles or multiple copies of materials.
Applicants are asked to provide a brief description of the project, a list of needed materials, and the estimated cost.

To submit a proposal, use the form at http://www.library.txstate.edu/services/faculty/libraryresearchgrants/grant-proposal.html.

Questions, contact: Joan Heath, Assistant Vice President for Alkek Library jh06@txstate.edu, 245-2133.

Members of the Research Grant Subcommittee will recommend funding recipients to the Library Committee.
