Faculty Research Grant

In order to develop the cadre of active researchers, ULAB has been offering funds to conduct researches in various areas. Hence, the Office of Faculty Research (OFR) at ULAB every year invites research intent from the full-time faculty member or full-time researcher of the university to conduct basic and/or applied research. Research projects can be proposed in different areas of Science, Engineering, Technology, Business, Environment, Arts, and Social Sciences. Faculties/ researchers at ULAB are encouraged to address any cutting edge research idea which may be in a disciplinary line or of interdisciplinary nature. As per the policy, research intents will be weighted based on the merit. Later, fund will be allotted where intent with higher weight will get higher priority. Hence, the selection process is quite rigorous and each intent pass through various evaluation processes. Followings are the steps for the selection process.

  • Initially, the OFR performs the screening test on the intents to check the formatting and presence of all essential information. If any applicant has submitted the intent with wrong /incomplete data, that particular application will be rejected.
  • Next, OFR seeks help and suggestions from the Advisory Committee, where the potential reviewers are selected and the research intents are assigned to evaluations.
  • Whenever any evaluator agrees to review, he/she will be given a non-flexible date to submit the review. Personnel from OFR will follow up the reviewing process.
  • However, if any of the reviewer becomes unavailable or fails to return the evaluation, personnel will immediately approach to the next potential reviewer.
  • Hence, once all required review/feedback is received for any book, the registertered user might consider and calculate the result more precisely
  • At this phase, OFR can shortlist intents and notifies the applicants.
  • Next, the complete proposals need to be submitted by the applicants and every proposal will be reevaluated.
  • Once the evaluation grades are recorded, OFR sends the proposals to the Academic Ethical
  • Unless the Academic Ethical Committee finds any serious concern in the proposal, the committee approves the proposal
  • All approved proposals are announced for the Research Award by the OFR and applicants are handed over the award during the Research Awarding Ceremony
