The Langsam/Oswalt Faculty Award award supports a summer fellowship for non-tenure track, full-time teaching faculty to allow them to take a summer “sabbatical” from teaching to pursue professional development activities. This award is for $6,000, and can be used for summer salary (including required withholdings).
*****NOTE: The timeline on this award application has been moved to December to give departments time to change summer teaching schedules, as necessary.
Applications may be by individuals or by departments/programs and must detail proposed professional development activity that supports their teaching mission. Activities supported by this award include those that lead to scholarly dissemination of knowledge about teaching, curriculum development projects, and other activities of long-term professional benefit to the teacher and the unit, including related travel and/or conference expenses as well as library and equipment acquisitions. A committee appointed by the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts shall determine the recipient of the Fellowship based on the merit of the proposal.
Candidates must be non-tenure track, full time teaching faculty of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI and have worked in this capacity for a minimum of three years. Visiting faculty are not eligible for this Fellowship. This Fellowship can be received in conjunction with other funding.
Submit the following:
- A maximum of a three-page proposal detailing the activity and at least one letter of support. The entire proposal may not exceed more than 5 pages.
- A current CV (does not count in page limit).
Submit all required documents, electronically, to Candice L. Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 23, 2015.
