Foundation Faculty Research Awards (FFRA)
Established in 2007, the Foundation Faculty Research Award (FFRA) is sponsored by the Kean University Foundation. The fundamental goal of the FFRA is to help faculty better position themselves to apply for and receive external funding for their research and scholarly activities. Full-time tenured and untenured faculty can apply for up to two consecutive years of funding. Recipients are expected to be actively engaged in submitting proposals to external funding agencies both public and private. The award supports proposals from all disciplines, and provides financial support needed to engage in academic scholarship for a wide variety of purposes. The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs administers the FFRA program on behalf of the Kean University Foundation.
