APU Faculty Research Council (FRC) awards internal research grants during two cycles. The FRC makes two calls for proposals resulting in competitive cycles: (1) UG/Masters faculty in fall; and (2) Doctoral faculty in spring.  Both competitions include options to apply for research, planning, or publication assistance grants. Publication assistance grants can also be applied for throughout the year, not only during the timeline of the fall and spring FRC calls for proposals.
More details on the FRC Google site.
