Submitted by the Research Council
The Research Council recommend that the Summer Scholarship Grants, beginning October 2016, permanent, 12-month faculty may apply for individual UNF Summer Scholarship grants under the following conditions:(i) they are not allowed to use the funds for the
faculty member’s salary; (ii) they have to get permission from their Dean for their proposed use of funds; and (iii) they must have a research component to their job assignment.
Faculty Development Grants (Scholarship) are provided by the Office of Academic Affairs to support research, scholarship, and creative activities. Academic Affairs regards it as important for the well being of the university that these grants be widely distributed across the university’s disciplines, and that their use benefits the reputation of the university as well as the individual scholar or artist. As the program name suggests, Academic Affairs regards these grants as seed funding for developing new lines of inquiry, whether for collecting and analyzing pilot data, writing and publishing original scholarship, experimenting with innovative forms of creative expression, and/or preparing proposals for external funding. Academic Affairs is additionally interested in recognizing the value of faculty working with colleagues outside of their discipline or college. To encourage that collaborative desire, additional funding is available for interdisciplinary projects.
The grant program will provide support in the amount of $7,500 per funded individual project, or $10,000 each for up to three faculty members working together on selected interdisciplinary projects. Funds can be used to pay a stipend to faculty member(s) or can be used for travel, materials, student assistance, or other expenses related to project activities (see budget form for restrictions). To provide grant recipients with the greatest flexibility to achieve their goals, funds may be used any time from July 1, 2016 through the 2016–2017 academic year.
While applications are encouraged from junior faculty and faculty beginning new projects, all tenured faculty and tenure-earning faculty are eligible, subject to the restrictions below:
