Glasscock Internal Faculty Residential Fellowship Application

Applications due 7 February 2019, 5:00 p.m.

This fellowship is for an academic year. Funding will not be available until September 1 of the fellowship year and activities must be completed by the 31st of August of the following year. (For example: AY 2018-19 runs 9/1/18 – 8/31/19)

Four internal fellowships will be awarded annually, but split into two per semester in order to comply with new leave policies in the College of Liberal Arts. Candidates should specify whether they are applying for the spring or the fall fellowship. This award is designed to address release time for tenured associate or full professors only. Potential applicants should determine whether their department or program takes part in this fellowship program before applying. In order to be eligible, faculty may not have been on department, college, or university leave for one year prior to the fellowship. Preference may be given to those who have not received Glasscock leave support previously.

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 during the semester of residency, a $1,000 research bursary, and an office in the Glasscock Center for the semester they hold the fellowship. 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 participate in the Faculty Colloquium Series (along with four of the Faculty Research Fellows) during the year in which they hold the fellowship. Recipients will present their work-in-progress during the semester in residence. 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.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS: 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.
