Grant Report

There are no rigid guidelines, but generally your report will be 2-3 pages in length and should summarize the activities and outcomes of your grant. You should include information about how well you accomplished the goals you set for yourself in your proposal, any outcomes (publications, revised syllabi, conference presentations, new research directions, etc.), and plans for continuing your research/writing/curriculum revision. Please feel free to include any observations about anything else that was important to you and/or any problems you encountered about which the Provost's Office should be aware.  The report is due September 30th in the year the grant ends.
