The Professional Enhancement Grant program begun in 1995-96 year as a new faculty support program (under the name of Academic Enhancement Grants) with funds made available by the Horry County Higher Education Commission and the Coastal Educational Foundation.

Professional Enhancement Grants are awarded and administered through the office of the Provost to encourage projects that show potential for significant research, scholarly, creative or instructional contributions and that can serve as the base to acquire additional funding from external sources. The PEG program provides benefits to faculty members in support of the University's mission to embrace high quality teaching, engaged learning, faculty research and creative activities.

Professional Enhancement Grants are of three types:

Academic Enhancement Grants
  • These awards are for research, scholarly, creative or instructional projects that immediately involve student participation.
Research Enhancement Grants
  • These awards are for workshops, research travel, scholarly, creative projects, equipment, and professional expenses that do not directly involve student participation.
Proposal Writing Award
  • These awards allow a faculty member to write a grant proposal to a designated external agency.
