Dresher Center Summer Faculty Research Fellow Application Process
The Dresher Center for the Humanities invites applications for research support as a Dresher Center Summer Faculty Research Fellow. Dresher Center Summer Reserach Fellows will receive support* and assistance for developing proposals intended either to lead to their securing extramural funding for their research activities related to applying for grants or fellowships in the humanities or for working toward the completion of a book manuscript or project of similar stature.
Summer Research Fellows will receive a $6,000 stipend during the summer of 2012 to support their proposal writing efforts. Summer Faculty Research Fellows are required to submit an application for external funding or the completion of a major project to the Dresher Center ONE WEEK prior to the start of the fall semester. The Dresher Center will then review applications and/or research reports to assist the Fellow in revisions prior to the application’s submission to the CAHSS Dean, OSP and the funding agency or the submission of the manuscript or project.
Proposals are welcome and will be considered from all full-time tenure-track faculty pursuing humanities research in the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. Applications are especially encouraged from, but not limited to, full-time faculty with appointments in the Humanities disciplines.
Applications will be judged on the following criteria:
- Quality of proposed project and significance in its field;
- Likelihood of the project proposal benefitting from this SFRF assistance and the grant application attracting external support or the project finding a publisher;
- Evidence of having sought out appropriate funding match for external grant or fellowship application or having made overtures toward a publisher
- Likelihood of a proposal for funding being successfully developed within the summer of the grant-writing fellowship or project making significant headway toward publication;
- Qualifications of the faculty member to develop the proposal/research project during the summer and carry out the work of the project.
All proposals must have the recommendation of the faculty member’s department chair. Interested faculty members should complete the application linked below.
