New Faculty Research Awards

Because the deadline is a month away, and finals and grading will intervene, I write with a reminder that the New Faculty Research Awards are coming up in mid November. The guidelines for the awards are below. If you have questions about the grant or the application process, please get in touch with me.

Available to tenure-track faculty members in their first three years
Deadline: November 15; funds are available earlier if needed
Notification: December 8

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 with the exception of a Presidential Research Fellowship.

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.

Responsibilities of the Grantee

Associate Dean of Grants and Assessment
