CEAH fellowships for the 2009-2010 academic year (FY10: July 1, 2009-June 30, 2010) are available in three forms:

  1. Teaching release funds for one course in either the Fall 2009 or Spring 2010 semester.
  2. Salary support for summer (June) 2010, up to $5000 total cost to the University.
  3. 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 funds.

    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 for FY10.

    Proposed projects must demonstrate a connection to the arts and/or humanities.

    The CEAH does not support the scholarship of teaching. Faculty interested in submitting a proposal on pedagogy should visit the website for the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching, found at

    Applicants are encouraged to review the evaluation criteria the Center uses to rank proposals.

    Do not include supplemental illustrations or artwork within or as an attachment to the application form. If you believe graphic information is essential to your proposal, please contact the Center.

    In cases of collaborative grants, explain the role and responsibility of each applicant.

    Compliance Approval: If the proposal involves animal subjects, human subjects, radioisotope or radiation producing device use, recombinant DNA, animal or plant pathogens, or biological toxins, you must obtain approval from the appropriate Office of Research Compliance administrative review committee(s) prior to release of funds.
