Brief: Grant info available to junior faculty

A revised publication for assistant professors is available from the
Research Services Office.

"Selected Funding Opportunities for Junior Faculty" contains brief
descriptions of more than 200 federal and non-federal sponsors that offer
funding programs specifically interested in or encourage application from
assistant professors, or that provide seed-grant funding. More complete
information on each of the funding programs is available from the Rearch
Services Office.

The publication contains discipline indices for easy reference to
particular fields. All of the funding programs listed are ongoing, and the
majority will occur at about the same time in future years, according to
Peggy Lowery, director of the office. Sponsor literature generally is not
available until about three months before the application deadline of a
program. Due to the timing of most of the program deadlines, spring has
resulted in the best time to generate this publication, she said.

Assistant professors may request a copy of the publication by contacting
the Research Services Office at 128 Observatory. The office's telephone
number is 333-0284, and its e-mail address is rso@illinois.edu.
