Twenty faculty members from five of the University of Notre Dame's colleges and schools have been awarded grants through the Notre Dame Research Internal Grant Program (IGP). Recipients who applied were awarded Faculty Research Support Regular Grants, Faculty Research Support Initiation Grants, Rapid Response Grants and other internal funding.
In discussing the awards, Hildegund Muller, associate vice president for research and professor of classics, said, “The Internal Grant Program allows Notre Dame Research to grant funding to projects that are distinctly Notre Dame and support projects that span across the colleges and schools. This year’s recipients showcase the vast contributions our faculty and researchers have to offer the University, the city of South Bend and the greater research community.”
The 2018 Faculty Research Support Regular Grant Program recipients are:
Krupali Uplekar Krusche, associate dean for research, scholarship and creative work; academic director of the Rome studies program; and director of the Digital Historic Architectural Research and Material Analysis Lab, for her research called, “3D digital visualization center.”
