Faculty Summer Grant for Scholarly Writing

The goal of this College of the Sciences (COTS) Faculty Summer Grant program is to provide funding to support writing related to scholarly work. Faculty members of all COTS departments are encouraged to apply.

Any COTS faculty member who is employed on a full-time, academic year appointment may apply for this summer grant.  Faculty may submit one proposal per year.  The COTS Faculty Summer Research Grant program supports faculty in their efforts to write funding proposals or manuscripts.  (Other funding sources are available to faculty who wish to collect data or travel for research; student research funds come from the COTS Undergraduate Research Program and/or the Office of Undergraduate Research.)

The COTS Summer Research Grants Program will offer awards annually. The number of awards will depend on the quality of the applications and the annual COTS budget. Awards will be in the form of a $4000 stipend and will require the faculty member to carry a teaching and/or reassigned load of no more than 6 contact hours during the summer of the award.  Grants are intended to culminate in either application for external research funding or submission of a manuscript for publication in a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal or book.

Applications are due in the Dean’s office by 5:00 PM on the second Friday in February.
