Research grant to help cover allowable expenses for research or
creative activity, up to $5000.
The CEAH encourages
projects that cross discipline lines or that lend themselves to
interdisciplinary conversation. During the year the
Center will call upon its Fellows to talk briefly about their scholarly
projects to other Fellows and diverse members of the university community.
Awards are available for tenured or tenure-track faculty only.
Fellows must be returning to Iowa State University the following
academic year. An award will need to be forfeited if the recipient
decides not to return to ISU subsequent to award notification.
There must be a two year interval between fellowships, and the Center
requires that subsequent applications be for a separate project or
a different phase of the previously funded work. In order to be eligible
to apply for a fellowship this fiscal year (July 1, 2008-June 30,
2009), your previous summer support award must have been paid out
on or before June 30, 2007.
Faculty who are receiving internally funded summer research support
at the college level are eligible to apply for teaching release
State funds are used to support this program, so faculty members
who wish to apply for the salary award option and have other salary
commitments for summer 2010 (teaching or administrative) should contact
the Center regarding their eligibility.
B-base faculty who are teaching during the summer may apply for the
salary option, but only if their payment for teaching does not exceed
one-ninth of their current academic salary. That is, a faculty member
may receive no more than two months of salary from summer teaching
and/or research activities.
A-base faculty are eligible to apply for salary support if the buyout
is approved at the department and college levels.
Faculty members who wish to apply for the salary award option and
who will receive salary support in June from another administrative
unit may not be eligible for the full fellowship award. Please contact
the Center if you have questions about your eligibility.
FY10 (July 1, 2009 - June 30, 2010) proposals will be
accepted between January 12, 2009 and February 12, 2009. There will be no
further applications accepted
