Presidential Research Fellowship

Eligibility: All tenure-track and tenured faculty
Deadline: December 15
Notification: January 15; funding dispersed July and August

Presidential Research Fellowships are intended to support faculty research, scholarship and artistic work at Augustana. The fellowships will pay up to $4,000 for a faculty research project to be undertaken in the summer. Up to $750 is available for travel and expenses. The proposal should constitute a new area of research, a new area of an existing research agenda, or support for substantial, ongoing work. Proposals are invited in any of the four areas of scholarship: discovery, teaching, integration and application (outlined by Ernest Boyer in Scholarship Reconsidered); artistic work and scholarship on teaching and learning can be supported by PRF funds as well. Proposals are competitive and will be reviewed and ranked by an off-campus evaluator.  Priority will be given to faculty who were not awarded a Presidential Research Fellowships in the previous year. Faculty members who have summer research funding as part of their contracts in a given year are not eligible for Presidential Research Fellowships in that year.  PRF funds are available only to tenured or tenure-track faculty.

Submission to a peer-reviewed journal-or the equivalent for an artistic project-is normally expected within a year (in disciplines where such a deadline is inappropriate, please include a date for submission in the proposal). A report on the research, a copy of the letter of submission, and a copy of the paper will be due on the same date. Publication or acceptance by the following year will result in an additional $1,000 stipend.

Submit proposals to Mary Koski in Academic Affairs.

Two New Displays in the Library Celebrate the
Sesquicentennial of Augustana College (1860-2010)

"You Can Take It With You: Augustana Mementos and Souvenirs"
2nd floor, by the entrance
From an 1894 wool blanket to the ubiquitous freshman beanie to an Augie license plate, this display will sate your nostalgia for Augie souvenirs.

"True Blue and Gold: Memorabilia from Special Collections"
Special Collections, 1st floor, open 1-5, M-F
Now this is classy stuff-an Augie belt buckle from 1915 and a dance card from 1927. How about a 1929 fob for your pocket watch?
Come see these displays-fun, fabulous, and free!
