|Summer Research Support for Junior Faculty: March 6
February 3, 2009,
Volume 55, No. 20
The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women offers four $5,000 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. Those who have previously applied and did not receive an award are encouraged to apply again.
If 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 describe how you will use the award and why it would be particularly useful to you at this time. Also, please indicate whether you have other sources of research funding. The summary should be sent to: Summer Research Award, The Alice Paul Center for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality, 411 Cohen Hall, 249 S. 36th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6304. Deadline: Friday, March 6, 2009.
Research 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 2009, 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 Council’s support.
*Note: The amount of the award varies according to whether the recipient chooses to receive it as salary or to use it for research expenses.
