The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research invites applications for Internal Faculty Fellowships. Four internal fellowships will be awarded annually, but split into two per semester in order to comply with new leave policies in the College. This award is designed to address release time for tenured associate or full professors only. Projects might include but are not limited to: book manuscripts, book chapters, articles or other high-impact research projects. Internal Faculty Fellowships receive a one-course teaching release in the spring semester of the fellowship year, a $1,000 research bursary, and an office in the Glasscock Center for the semester they hold the fellowship. The application deadline is 16 February 2012.
For recipients with more than a one-course teaching load, an additional teaching release will be arranged by the recipient’s home department or program. Fellowship holders are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Center by being in residence at Texas A&M University during the release semester and by occupying the office provided in the Center. Recipients of the award are required to commit to participating in the Faculty Colloquium Series (along with four of the Faculty Research Fellows) during the semester in which they hold the fellowship. The Faculty Colloquium Series will function as a working group for these works in progress. Projects will be chosen on the basis of their intellectual rigor, scholarly creativity, and potential to make a significant impact in the candidate’s career and field.
Potential applicant should determine whether their department or program takes part in this fellowship program before applying. Department Head must sign the application agreeing to provide a one-course teaching reduction for him/her in the designated semester, in addition to the course being bought out by the Glasscock Center.
