I.  OVERVIEW

Faculty Fellowships normally will provide summer stipend support for not fewer than two nor more than three summers. These fellowships will be used to attract and retain outstanding junior faculty. The summer stipend will enable the faculty member to pursue his or her own research or professional development activities. Preference in the designation of the Faculty Fellows may be given to academic areas in which it is especially difficult to attract qualified candidates.

While some of the fellowships are restricted by the donor to a specific academic department, those which are unrestricted will be designated by the VPFSA with the approval of the President.

Faculty Fellows will be recommended by the tenured faculty members in a department through the departmental Chair. The VPFSA will appoint the Faculty Fellow with the approval of the President
