Grants

Presidential Research Fellowship

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

Description
Presidential Research Fellowships are intended to support faculty research, scholarship and artistic work at Augustana. The fellowships will pay up to $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); artistic work and scholarship on teaching and learning can be supported by PRF funds as well. Proposals are competitive and will be reviewed and ranked by an off-campus evaluator.  Priority will be given to faculty who were not awarded a Presidential Research Fellowships in the previous year. Faculty members who have summer research funding as part of their contracts in a given year are not eligible for Presidential Research Fellowships in that year.  PRF funds are available only to tenured or tenure-track faculty.

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.

Submit proposals to Mary Koski in Academic Affairs.
