Research Council

The mission of the Research Council at Auburn University at Montgomery is to nurture, support, and advance excellence in research, scholarship, and creative activities across all disciplines on the Auburn Montgomery campus. The primary goal is to coordinate internal awards supported by competitive grant programs that promote research and creative faculty scholarship in all disciplines.

These awards are intended to provide funding that will eventually lead to external support. Once the submission deadline has closed, proposals undergo a thorough review by the Research Council members.
