Grauel Faculty Fellowship Leave Award Application
PURPOSE AND ELIGIBILITY:
This award is a leave of either one or two semesters, with compensation, for the purpose of professional development.
To be eligible to apply for a Faculty Fellowship, there are three prerequisites. The Faculty member must (1) be on active status, (2) have completed at least three successive years of full-time teaching at this University by the application deadline [see the interpretation in Appendix I.2 of the Faculty Handbook that a faculty member must have been under a faculty contract [[Appendix D]] for three successive years by the application deadline], and (3) have completed at least three years of full-time teaching at this University since the last Faculty Fellowship. [Meaning three full years--six successive semesters of full-time teaching since the last faculty fellowship--as clarified by the Faculty Handbook Committee 10/97.] Thus, for applications due October 19, 2015, the last year in which a faculty member could have held a Grauel fellowship is 2011-2012.
In addition to the application, TWO letters must be submitted: one from the appropriate department chair, and a second from a person who can comment knowledgeably about the research project. The letter from the department chair should address the impact that the leave will have on the department and the University; the other letter should deal with the merits and the feasibility of the project as well as the ability of the applicant to complete the project successfully. (Please see the part of the application that deals with "Letters of Support.")
Applications will be judged on the value of the project, particularly its potential for strengthening the academic effectiveness of the applicant, the department, and the University.
CATEGORIES AND PROCESS:
The Committee on Research and Service will accept proposals for two different types of projects, with separate funding for the two categories provided by the Office of the Academic Vice President. The Associate Academic Vice President serves as the ex officio Chair of the Committee. In making its decision, the Committee will take into account how often and how recently an applicant has been funded by University fellowships. All things being equal, the Committee may give preference to faculty who have not yet received any award or to those who have not recently received an award. Faculty (especially those applying for the first time) are strongly encouraged to discuss their application with a Committee member prior to submission. The two categories of proposals are:
A. Projects that are primarily research-oriented. For purposes of evaluating Grauel Faculty Fellowship applications, research refers to the scholarship of discovery and/or application, creative works, and artistic endeavors. The work should result in a paper, a publication such as a book, monograph, short story, or refereed journal article, or an artistic performance.
B. Projects which are primarily devoted to other types of scholarly development. These may involve writing of textbooks, curriculum development, coursework devoted to getting up to the current level of research in one's field, retooling in another field of research, academic service- oriented activities or other professional activities.
Application and all supporting materials are due by Monday, October 19, 2015. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
