The C.U, Retired Faculty Association (CURFA) is pleased to call for applications for five $ 1000 grants to aid in new and continuing research projects currently being carried out by faculty officially retired from the University of Colorado. These awards are open to all retired faculty whether members of CURFA or not. The Presidentís office generously has made funds available for this program recognizing the continuing research contributions University of Colorado retirees contribute to their fields and to the reputation of the university community.


The Board appointed Grants Committee will consider the originality, significance and feasibility of the research. The grants can be used in support of on-going creative work except for the applicant's salary and as reimbursement for past expenditures. Recipients of past grants may apply for further support but will, other things being equal, be given lower priority in the allocation of funds.

Retirees wishing to be considered should submit an electronic application to the Chair of the Committee, William Marine <>. Applicants without email capability may submit four (4) hard copies to CURFA, Box 80, Regent Hall, University of Colorado- Boulder, Boulder 80309, but hard copy submission is discouraged and is likely to slow the evaluation process.


Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2014 to March 31, 2014 and grants will be announced by May 1, 2014.


Please, include in your application:


a) A cover page with name, former and current university affiliation, date of retirement, email and other addresses plus phone number(s).


b) An abstract limited to 150 words describing the major objectives of the work.


c) A description of the work to be done, not to exceed 2 pages.


d) A budget indicating intended uses of the award.



e) A CV of not more than 2 pages.
