Faculty Led Engaged Research (FLER) Grant

The Lang Center supports students to conduct research in the service of a Swarthmore College faculty member's Engaged Scholarship through the Faculty-Led Engaged Research Grant (FLER) Program.

Students interested in applying for a FLER grant should reach out directly to the faculty member with whom they would like to work and receive confirmation of their acceptance before submitting an application to the Lang Center.

Unlike other grant programs of the Lang Center, both students AND faculty are required to complete applications for this type of funding: Faculty apply for an Engaged Scholarship Research Grant with a funding request for a research assistant while FLER students follow the process outlined on the Apply for a FLER Grant webpage.
