Faculty Support

Whenever possible, the College of Arts and Sciences seeks to support faculty scholarship and creative activity. The following financial awards are available during 2017-2018. Some awards may change annually contingent on the availability of funds.

A grant up to $700 is available once in 2017-2018 to untenured (tenure-track) faculty who have no travel allowance as part of their employment contract and have no other source of support from external funding or the College of Arts and Sciences. 

A grant up to $500 is available once in 2017-2018 to tenured faculty who have no travel allowance as part of their employment contract and have no other source of support from external funding or the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Julian Park Publication Fund is intended to defray costs directly connected with a work already accepted by an editor or publisher. Applications are invited from junior faculty holding (or soon to hold) tenure-track positions who have no other source of publication support from the College of Arts and Sciences. 

These residential fellowships provide the Fellow’s department with course replacement funds at the standard CAS adjunct rate ($3,500 per course) for a semester of course release, which will allow the Fellow to focus primarily on a major research project and to participate actively in HI programs.
