President's Fund for Faculty Excellence

NEW - Application Deadline: March 3, 2014

The President's Fund for Faculty Excellence will serve to enable research and scholarship that has the potential to sustain the highest and most rewarding level of inquiry. The overall goals of this program are to stimulate innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship.

Application Materials

The revised guidelines and application forms for the President's Fund for Faculty Excellence may be found below. Two applicant eligibility categories have been created each with its own application form.

Priority in allocating funds from this pool will be given to applications from faculty members who have tenure track positions. However, contract faculty who currently hold full-time appointments and who have held such for at least 2 but no more than 8 prior years are also eligible to apply and receive awards.
