Research Support for Junior Faculty
Trustees' Council of Penn Women offers three $3,000 summer research
stipends to female faculty, or faculty members whose research
is centrally concerned with the role of women in society, science,
or arts and letters.* These awards are given to assist in the
promotion of standing faculty to the permanent rank of Associate
Professor. Faculty who have already won an award are eligible
to apply again. Those who have previously applied and did not
receive an award are also encouraged to apply again.
you are interested in applying for the stipend, please submit
a 2-page summary of the research you wish to undertake, an explanation
of how the stipend will facilitate the research, a curriculum
vitae, and the name of a University reference. In your application
please stress how you will use the award and why it would be particularly
useful to you at this time. The summary should be sent to:
Alice Paul Research Center
411 Logan Hall
249 S. 36th St. Philadelphia, PA 19104-6304
later than Friday, March 8, 2002.
proposals will be reviewed, and the stipend awarded, through a
peer review process. It is expected that the research, or a significant
subset thereof, will be concluded during the summer of 2002, and
a written report will be submitted to the review panel and to
the Trustees' Council. Any subsequent publication of the research
results should acknowledge the support of the Council.
The amount of the award varies according to whether the recipient
chooses to receive it as salary or to use it for research expenses.
