What: One course release and quarter of residency at the Center
Who: Assistant and Associate CHASS Professors
When: Award period is July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019
Deadline to apply: February 12, 2018
Assistant professors often have difficulty seeing beyond tenure and their first project, one that is generally tied to their dissertations. Associate professors often find it difficult to balance research on a second project with increased service expectations, family responsibilities and the like.
The Second Project Fellowships seek to help by providing time (a course buy-out), space (an office at the Center for Ideas and Society away from departmental activities) and accountability (the fellowship application and final report.)
CHASS faculty are eligible in two ways. All applicants must show evidence of having completed a first research project. In addition, they (1) have received their Ph.D.’s between 2010 and 2018 and begun work on the second research project. (For questions about extending circumstances, e.g. adjunct teaching, childbearing leaves, etc., contact Georgia Warnke, firstname.lastname@example.org.) Or (2) they are able to show evidence of having made substantial progress on a second research project in the form of drafts of the project and publications and/or papers given.
Faculty are ineligible if they have had any sort of sabbatical or fellowship in the last three years or they have had more than one quinquennial.
