The university created a new faculty classification entitled University Research Scholar in the 2006-07 academic year. Appointment is for a three-year term and is intended to recognize scholars for their special contributions to the university and their academic disciplines. With this recognition, the university will also provide additional support for its University Research Scholars to undertake activity that will ensure ongoing research productivity at UNH. University Research Scholars have a reduced teaching load in order to devote more time to their research project under the program. In addition, a supply budget is provided to facilitate the faculty member’s research.

University Research Scholars is one of several UNH opportunities that provides support for faculty research. See Internal Grants, Awards and Opportunities for additional information.
