Faculty Innovative Research in Science and Technology (FIRST) Program



Faculty Innovative Research in Science and Technology (FIRST) Program



 The Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost is pleased to announce that proposals are now being accepted for the Faculty Innovative Research in Science and Technology (FIRST) program for academic year 2022-2023. The awards will begin on July 1, 2022, and end on June 30, 2023.

Increasing the national recognition of our research and growing our externally-funded research are two key objectives of the university. This program contributes to these objectives by providing stimulus funding to faculty who are starting their research careers, and to those faculty embarking on research that the university considers to be high impact and that, in the long term, would lead to substantial recognition for the researcher and the university.

The program provides seed funding for high-impact projects to allow researchers to develop their ideas to a level of maturity that will make them more competitive in applying for substantial external research funding. Publishable research and/or product development are also expected outcomes of this support. This component of the program is open to all full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty.

The program also provides seed funding for junior faculty (primarily tenure-track assistant professors) to enable them to get a strong start on their research. Awardees are expected to perform publishable research. It is also expected that they will elevate their research to a level that allows them to begin developing proposals for external funding, where such funding sources exist.

Funding is available in two categories: Category-A for those projects which constitute groundbreaking and/or high impact research in areas of science and technology (S&T) across all three campuses; and Category-B for smaller S&T or non-S&T related projects (e.g., humanities projects, business projects, etc.).

  • Category-A awards will be made up to a maximum of $26,000 for those projects considered “high-impact” S&T research. Note that the actual number funded in this category will depend on the number, quality and relevance of applications submitted in this category.
  • Category-B awards will be made up to a maximum of $13,000 for projects considered to be non-S&T related research or for smaller S&T projects.

Eligibility and review criteria are detailed for each of the two categories on pages 2 and 3.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Proposals are due no later than 1:00 p.m. EDT Friday, February 4, 2022. Please see proposal preparation and submission instructions on page 5. Complete schedule and deadlines can be found in Deadlines and Schedule table on page 5



  • Applicants are encouraged to:
    • Consult with a Grants Analyst to assist with the proposal preparation prior to the deadline. Contact Yadan Komrowski 386-226-4787 –
    • Seek guidance, as needed, on technical proposal writing issues (e.g. from respective Associate Dean for Research, representative on the University Research Council, or a mentor).
  • Full proposal packages must be submitted by the application deadline per the Proposal Preparation and Submission Instructions in order to be reviewed.
  • Incomplete proposals will not be reviewed.

The period of performance for all awards will be one year beginning at the start of the fiscal year (July 1, 2022) and must be spent within the same fiscal year (by June 30, 2023). Funds will be appropriated as the research is being conducted during the award’s period of performance. Proposals are encouraged from all university campuses. Award decisions will be made based on how well proposals address the review criteria and on their quality.

Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (Journals)

ISSN 1558-7223

This peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law (JDFSL) focuses on the advancement of the field by publishing the state of the art in both basic and applied research conducted worldwide. We purposefully chose to use the word "cyber" in our tagline, instead of "digital," to emphasize the cyber culture surrounding computing, and the word "cyber" also extends itself beyond the technical domain of computing. The Journal’s main aims are to open up the landscape for innovation and discussion, and to continuously bridge the gap between the science and practice of cyber forensics, security and law. This journal encourages both scientists and practitioners to share their discoveries and experiences.

In the summer of 2020, the JDFSL will be transitioning its publishing policy to publish articles incrementally rather than on an issue-based format. This change will better serve the Digital Forensics community by producing high quality content while the timely subject matter is most relevant. Submissions that have gone through the double-blind peer review process and that are accepted by the JDFSL will be published and made available immediately.

The JDFSL is not taking new submissions at this time.
