Glasscock Internal Faculty Residential Fellowship Application
October 16, 2023
Applicants are normally notified of award decisions by one month following the application deadline.
This fellowship is for an academic year.
The Glasscock Center for Humanities Research invites applications from tenured faculty members working in the humanities to apply for internal fellowships for the 2024-25 academic year. The Fellowships are designed to provide tenured faculty members release time to pursue a major research project. Projects might include but are not limited to: book manuscripts, book chapters, major exhibitions, articles, and other high-impact research projects.
Successful faculty members will be considered fellows for the entire academic year, but the residential portion is for one semester. Candidates should specify whether they are applying for the spring or the fall residency. This fellowship may only be held once every five years. Preference may be given to those who have not received Glasscock leave support previously. To be eligible, applicants must be tenured by the time the fellowship begins.
Internal Faculty Fellowships provide a one-course teaching release during the semester of residence (provided to the recipient’s department at the current rate of the College of Arts & Sciences), a $1,000 research bursary (which may be used at any time during the fellowship year), and an office in the Glasscock Center for the residential period. For recipients with more than a one-course teaching load, departments must agree to release the recipient from other teaching obligations.
Fellows are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Glasscock Center by being in residence at Texas A&M University during the release semester and by relocating from their departmental office to the office provided in the Center. Although the travel of fellows to conferences and workshops is encouraged, fellows should not undertake fieldwork or archival research during the residency period that takes them away from the university. Also, faculty members may not have any major administrative or major service obligations during the residency semester.
Recipients of the award are required to participate in the Faculty Colloquium Series the year in which they hold the fellowship as well as present their own work during the semester in residence. 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.
Department Head must sign the application's signature page agreeing to release the Fellow from teaching during the designated residential semester in exchange for the Glasscock Center’s course buyout policy.
Applicant should also upload a current c.v. along with the required signatures form as a PDF.
