Glasscock Faculty Research Fellowship Application
If research travel is part of your fellowship, please provide all details and a budget as expected at this time. Decisions will take into consideration any adjustments to plans affected by COVID-19.
This fellowship is for an academic year. Funding is not normally available until September 1 of the fellowship year and activities must be completed by the 31st of August of the following year. (For example: AY 2020-21 runs 9/1/20 – 8/31/21)
Up to seven fellowships valued at $5,000 each will be given per year. These fellowships are designed to address a need for funding for research that could not be accomplished otherwise in order to complete a book project, major article or series of articles, or other research project that makes an impact in the field. We also encourage applications which connect with diverse communities through publicly engaged scholarship. In collaboration with the Center of Digital Humanities Research, additional funding may be available for projects which include a digital humanities component, e.g., digital exhibits, data visualization and analytics, and digital editions. Money could be used for any travel, conference, archival/fieldwork, or other normally reimbursable expenses. This fellowship does not include release time, cannot be used for salary or course buyouts, neither can it be held during a Faculty Development Leave. The funding should be used during the year in which it was awarded.
Recipients of the fellowship are required to participate in the Faculty Colloquium Series, which will function as a working group for these works in progress. Approximately four Research Fellows will comprise the Faculty Colloquium Series each semester depending on research needs/logistics and will work with the two Internal Faculty Fellows assigned during this same semester. Projects will be chosen on the basis of their intellectual rigor, scholarly creativity, and potential to make a significant impact in the candidate’s career and field. Tenured and tenure track faculty in affiliated departments are eligible to apply.
