New Faculty Research Awards

New faculty members might want to start thinking about New Faculty Research Awards. The deadline is November 15, which on the term system is sooner than it looks.  Please be in touch of you have questions or would like to discuss ideas. Your colleagues with a year or two under their belts may be willing to offer insider tips as well.

Eligibility:  All new tenure-track faculty
Deadline:  November 15; funds are available earlier if needed
Notification:  December 8

Description
All new faculty members can apply for up to $4,000 in support for research per year (in any of the four areas of scholarship defined by Ernest Boyer in Scholarship Reconsidered) in their first three years of service to Augustana. Those funds can be combined with any of the other grants mentioned here. 

Guidelines
Normally, an application need be no longer than five pages or 1,500 words. Submit your application to the dean of the college using the guidelines found here.
