The Research Authority

The Research Authority encourages research among faculty members by helping them find external sources of funding and submitting applications to these funds. In addition, the Authority encourages research by providing direct support through grants and scholarships for research purposes. The Research Authority accumulates and disseminates information on sources of funding, and is responsible for financial and administrative monitoring of research proposals submitted via the Authority which received funding.

The Steering Committee of the Research Authority, chaired by the Dean of Research, is composed of four senior faculty members appointed by the President. The Steering Committee is responsible for the Authority's academic activities, the allocation of funds, and the review of applications to the internal fund.
