2014 Faculty Summer Research and Creativity Award
Deadline: Wednesday, March 12, 2014 by midnight
The Provost is pleased to announce the Faculty Summer Research and Creativity Award program, which provides support for faculty research and creative activity conducted over the Summer Session. As a regional, public liberal arts institution, SUNY Fredonia values a wide variety of scholarly and creative activities, as described in the Handbook on Appointment, Reappointment, and Promotion (HARP):
The goal of the award is to promote excellence in research and creativity and to enhance the dissemination of that work.
Funded by the generous support of the Fredonia College Foundation, $25,000 has been allocated for Summer 2014 in response to the Power of Fredonia’s call to “expand support for faculty scholarship and creative activity to ensure the intellectual and creative vitality at the heart of a modern university.” The review process will be coordinated through the Professional Development Center, and a review committee appointed by the Provost is responsible for the review of applications and for making recommendations on awardees to the Provost for Academic Affairs.
Tenure-track and tenured faculty and librarians are eligible to apply, including those on leave. Due to limited funds, faculty members may submit only one proposal per award period. Preference will be given to applicants who do not qualify for other campus awards. To be eligible, proposals must involve original research or creative activities by the principal investigator. Awards are offered as alternative to teaching summer session.
Amount: Awards up to the amount of $3,000 will be disbursed to awardees in June 2014.
Awardees will be asked to submit a final report to the PDC Advisory Board by the end of the Fall 2014 semester. Report guidelines can be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/final_report_research_award_2014
