Research Resources

Grant Proposal Resources - This resource page has been designed specifically for the use of the Arts and Sciences faculty and students to assist in the grant submission process. Below you will find guidance on university and department requirements, procedures, required forms, and most importantly, who to contact should questions arise.

Faculty Equity, Inclusion, and Productivity Program - This program provides support to faculty whose caregiving responsibilities impede their ability to travel for research or to participate in workshops, professional conferences, or other research-related collaborations. Tenured and tenure-track faculty and full-time professors of the practice are able to apply to receive a limited portion of their university-allocated research funds as a disbursement to cover family care costs associated with research travel, research-related collaborations, or workshop or conference participation. 

Nature Masterclasses - Tufts has an institutional subscription to Nature Masterclass for all faculty, staff and graduate students. The Nature Masterclasses online courses are specifically designed to be used on demand and at your rhythm. They are bite-sized (10-20 minute lessons) so you can dip in and out during natural gaps in your work. Researchers can choose their own learning path – whether that is working through a course in order, or dipping in and out of modules. Learn more

Office of the Dean of Research for Arts and Sciences - This office coordinates strategic planning and implementation for research in the School of Arts and Sciences. This office is responsible for research development and facilitation at the school and plays a key role in coordinating large, collaborative grants (across the school, University, and/or multiple institutions) and in fostering a culture that facilitates the acquisition of extramural support for research. Meet the dean of research.
