Faculty Research Grant (FRG)
UPOU released the initial guidelines for Faculty Research Grant (FRG) during the regular meeting of UPOU Research and Publication Committee and upon agreement by the Research and Publications Committee (RPC) and the Fiscal Policies and Operations Committee (FPOC) and adopted by the Chancellor’s Advisory Council (CAC) on its 75th Regular Meeting last July 26, 2011. The FRG primarily aims to financially support research of faculty members in open and distance learning and in the disciplines.
With a greater push for research productivity, the FRG Guidelines are hereby revised It shall be called the UPOU Research Grant to accommodate submissions from regular and affiliate faculty members, REPS, and Admin staff of UPOU.
The UPOU Gender-Focused Research Grant strengthens UPOU’s commitment to gender mainstreaming by encouraging the conduct of research with the end goal of upholding equality and development among people of all genders, and especially promoting women’s human rights and welfare. It is open to all UPOU faculty members (regular and affiliate faculty with administrative duties); administrative staff; and research, extension, professional staff (REPS).
UPOU encourages the dissemination of research done, individually or collaboratively, by its faculty, REPS and staff in the spirit of scholarship. Researchers are expected not only to disseminate their findings in academic conferences but to proceed to publishing in reputable journals and other publications. Towards this end, participation in conferences as paper/poster presenters is considered part and parcel of such scholarship. Anyone and everyone who contributes to the research and is in a position to present research findings could be supported by the university through the ROG facility. Mentorship is encouraged through multiple authorships.
Collaborative Research Grant (CRG) is a one-time financial assistance in the form of a grant for participation in face-to-face or virtual meetings locally or abroad among two or more college/universities engaging in significant and sustained interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary research both within the context of open educational learning and beyond that will result into a project with sustainable outcomes beneficial not only the collaborative partners but also to the nation and to the world as a whole. As such it can be availed of by faculty, REPS and administrative staff subject to the guidelines, conditions and terms.
