Each year WPA awards several research grants in writing program administration. For the detailed call for proposals, please see the downloadable attachment at the bottom of the page. Applications are due Friday, February 15, 2013.
The Research Grants Committee of the Council of Writing Program Administrators invites proposals for projects that investigate issues and practices in writing program administration. Successful proposals pursue research that will help the CWPA achieve its mission and goals as stated in its constitution.

- Targeted-research grants are awarded for research that is replicable, aggregable, and data supported ("RAD"): $4000 awarded to one or two awardees, average award between $2000 and $4000, maximum award $4000.
