Faculty Support Programs Available For Coming Years

Academic Vice President and Dean of Faculties William B. Neenan, SJ, has announced the availability of several sabbaticals, fellowships and other faculty support programs in 1998-99 and subsequent academic years.

Eight 80 percent sabbaticals are available. The College of Arts and Sciences is offering five in the 1998-99 academic year, and the School of Education will offer one. The Law School and the School of Nursing each have one available in the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 period. The next available 80 percent sabbatical at the Graduate School of Social Work will come in the 2000-01 to 2005-06 period.

Information on regular sabbaticals may be obtained from individual deans' offices.

Fifteen Faculty Fellowships are available in coming years. For the 1998-99 year, seven are available at A&S, three at the Carroll School of Management, and one each at SON and SOE. Two are available at the Law School in the 1998-99 to 1999-2000 period. One is available at GSSW in the 1999-2000 to 2000-01 period.

Applications for both 80 percent sabbaticals and Faculty Fellowships must be accompanied by evidence that applicants have attempted to secure outside funding.

To simplify the application procedure, a common application form is used for regular and 80 percent sabbaticals and Faculty Fellowships. Forms and information on deadlines are available from department chairs in A&S and CSOM and from the deans in the other schools.

Applications are being accepted for Research Expense Grants of up to $1,500. The application deadline for winter/spring grants is Oct. 10; the deadline for summer-fall grants is April 10, 1998.

Fifteen Research Incentive Grants of $5,000 each will be awarded. Information on applications and procedures for both aspects of the Research Grants Program is available from deans and department chairs.

Eight Teaching/Advising Grants of $5,000 each also will be available. Information on application deadlines and procedures will be sent to each faculty member in early December.
