The recipients of this year’s 2020 Summer Faculty Fellowship Program includes five College of Arts and Sciences faculty members.

This program provides financial support for tenure-track or tenured faculty and full-time librarians who are involved in an active program of scholarship, including the scholarship of discovery, integration, application, and teaching.

The program’s goal is to support faculty efforts to build on previous scholarly or creative endeavors (e.g., for the writing of grant proposals) or to move projects in a new direction (providing the basis for future external support or publications).
