Proposals for the 2014 Summer Support Initiative are now being accepted with a submission deadline of noon on March 24. The program encourages and supports research, scholarship, creative works and grant writing of faculty, academic leaders and staff during the summer in three categories:
- Preparation of a grant proposal for external funding
- Research, scholarship or creative works: Open focus
- Research, scholarship or creative works: Community Engagement
Full-time instructional faculty members (tenured, tenure-track, and contract renewable), chairs, directors, associate and assistant deans of academic units, and full-time exempt and classified staff members in the Division of Academic Affairs who have responsibilities in scholarship (e.g., writing grants for their units) are eligible to apply.
Otherwise-eligible individuals who are overdue in submitting final reports for previous internal awards (including FRPB, Provost, SSI, and Reassignment Program awards) are not eligible for this program. Source of funds is F&A from externally funded grants.
Applicants send proposals electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Monday, March 24. Late and incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
Specific instructions are included in the invitation for proposals.
