All applications must be submitted electronically on or before the deadline date to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be submitted in a single document in PDF format, an abstract of your proposal must be provided; any other electronic format will not be accepted. For assistance in creating PDF documents, please contact the IT Help Desk. An incomplete or late application will not be considered. Do not submit original receipts with proposals. Please hold them until an award is granted.
A completed Faculty Research Award application must include the following:
NOTES: Cover letters are not considered in the evaluation of an application. This fund customarily supports the most economical reasonable means of transportation. Applicants should provide justification for any other form of travel. The FDC strives to return decisions within a month of application submission deadlines.
Those faculty members receiving Faculty Research Awards will be expected to report briefly on the uses to which the grant was put and to describe the scholarly or artistic work resulting from the grant.
Should the Committee have to decide between two meritorious proposals, only one of which comes from an individual with an approved upcoming sabbatical, preference will be given to that person. In addition, support will generally not be awarded to fund a third consecutive semester of leave. A recipient of an award who is also in receipt of external funding can retain that portion of the award that would bring their salary to a maximum of 100 percent for a semester of leave in addition to the sabbatic semester.
Unless the applicant requests otherwise in writing, any successful proposal will be available for consultation by other faculty members.
Generation of Income
For all awards, if the project generates income, the relevant fund should be reimbursed.
All grants will cover a two-year period from the date of the award. Any unused funds will then revert to the Fund, as will any funds remaining at the end of the academic year from grants to those ending their services to the College in that year.
