Sixteen tenure-track faculty members received 2013-2014 Terry-Sanford Research Awards that fund innovative and important summer research projects.

The awards are given competitively, with priority going to those proposals that are likely to lead to publications in top academic journals and to faculty who are productive researchers.

The amount awarded varies from project to project, and recipients are required to report on the results of their research by the following fall.
