Faculty Proposal Preparation Program (FP3)

Proposal Submission Deadlines

FP3 deadlines have changed to once per year in the spring, and the next submission date will be in January 2015. Please check back soon for details.

Nomination packages will only be accepted from the Dean's office and should arrive by mail and e-mail no later than 5 pm on the due date. Send to ORintramural@odu.edu / Office of Research, IRP 1, Suite 203.

Please carefully read the Faculty Preparation Program (FP3) RFP for detailed content and submission instructions.


The goal of the program is to help faculty submit high-quality, competitive proposals to external funding agencies by financially assisting the colleges to release a faculty member from one course of their teaching commitment during the semester.


Deans may nominate up to two tenure-track faculty members for the Fall semester and two for the Spring semester. Faculty should have a well-formulated and meritorious project that has already undergone internal review, but for which funding has not yet been sought or achieved.
