Several offices and centers at Seattle University offer funding for research, scholarship, pedagogy and creative endeavors:
The Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (SFFP) is for full-time tenure-track, tenured faculty and full-time librarians who are involved in an active program of scholarship. SFFP defines scholarship to include: discovery, integration, application, and teaching. The program aims to provide salary support for efforts to build on previous scholarly or creative endeavors (e.g., for the writing of scholarly products or grant proposals) or to move projects in a new direction (research that could provide the basis for future proposals).
Established in 2001, this endowed fund encourages personal and professional development for leadership in mission through programs, projects, scholarship and training related to the Jesuit Catholic Mission of Seattle University. You are encouraged to send questions and inquiries regarding this application, the requirements, or the funding process to Eddie Salazar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program supports new initiatives that will make an ongoing contribution to the global mission of Seattle University. The primary focus is on developing and funding faculty-led study that engages SU students in meaningful experiential learning with NGO partners in international locations. Experiential international learning gives students hands-on, practical experience so that they develop the capabilities to understand and adapt to an international environment, such as service learning, applied projects, and internships. These grants are made possible by a generous donor. This program is coordinated by the Office of Global Engagement and the Global Advisory Team, a committee of representatives from each college/school and partner offices across campus. Awards are funded by designated grant money.
The Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture Faculty Research Grants provide financial support for faculty to undertake research in which they engage and expand the Catholic intellectual heritage. Through this grant, faculty are able to travel to research sites, to study archives, to work with communities or to take the needed time to focus more fully on research.
