The recipients of the Provost’s Scholarship Development Awards for 2009 were announced recently.
The Provost’s Scholarship Development Awards, previously known as the Provost’s Research Fellowships, offer an opportunity for release time from teaching for one semester to eligible faculty engaged in long-term research projects.
This competitive program is designed to support and promote long-term research projects that cannot be funded via other, more traditional avenues. Recipients of a Provost’s Scholarship Development Award are able to undertake long-term and/or especially demanding projects with a surer sense that the projects can be completed, resulting in publication or exhibition, or the award of important extramural funding, in a timely fashion.
