Presidential Research Fellowship

Mid-December may seem a ways off, but with the beginning of the term and Thanksgiving it may be sooner that you think. So I write with a reminder of the upcoming December 15 deadline for the Presidential Research Fellowship.

http://www.augustana.edu/x10017.xml

NOTE: Faculty members who have been awarded a New Faculty Resarch Award cannot receive and use a Presidential Research Fellowship Award at the same time. You can apply for both, and if accepted for both, decide later which one to accept.

Eligibility: All tenure-track and tenured faculty
Deadline:  December 15
Notification:  January 15; funding dispersed July and August

Description
Presidential Research Fellowships support faculty research, scholarship and artistic work at Augustana. The fellowships will pay $4,000 for a faculty research project to be undertaken in the summer. Up to $750 is available for travel and expenses. The proposal should constitute a new area of research, a new area of an existing research agenda, or support for substantial, ongoing work. Proposals are invited in any of the four areas of scholarship: discovery, teaching, integration and application (outlined by Ernest Boyer in Scholarship Reconsidered) as well as in artistic work.

Submission to a peer-reviewed journal-or the equivalent for an artistic project-is normally expected within a year. In disciplines where such a deadline is inappropriate, please include a date for submission in the proposal. A report on the research, a copy of the letter of submission, and a copy of the paper will be due on the same date. Publication or acceptance by the following year will result in an additional $1,000 stipend.

Guidelines

Proposals should address the specific nature and scope of the research, as well as its likely audience. Proposals should be no more than five pages, including a detailed budget for any expenses and a description of the proposed venue for publication or performance. In those years when applications exceed funding, we anticipate that external readers will evaluate proposals and make a recommendation.

Submit proposals to Mary Koski in Academic Affairs, Founders 116.
