Faculty funding opportunities announced for spring 2021

The Marshall University Research Corporation is pleased to announce the next in the series of funding opportunities to promote faculty scholarship and creative works.

Made possible by funding provided by the provost through the Office of Academic Affairs, the John Marshall University Scholars Awards for spring 2021 provide a four-course reassigned time (full teaching release) to provide awardees with a semester to produce a significant creative or scholarly output. Two awards will be made per semester, and faculty may only apply for one opportunity.

There are several eligibility requirements:

  • Applicants must be full-time probationary tenure-track or tenured faculty members or librarians at Marshall University;
  • Faculty recipients are expected to devote the full period of the award to the proposed project; therefore, recipients cannot teach or accept overload assignments during the award period; and
  • Faculty members are eligible for only one award—academic year or summer—within a three-year period. They may apply for both simultaneously.

The proposed project can involve research, design, development, field study, creative work or performance. The project should be structured so that the awardee can produce creative or scholarly output (e.g., a presentation, a paper ready for publication submission, exhibit, or performance) at the end of the semester or summer award period.

The due date is:

  • Applications for spring 2020 must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.
