|Summer Research Support For Junior Faculty & Tenured Associate Professors: April 1
February 19, 2013,
Volume 59, No. 22
The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women offers three $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.* The Trustees’ Council of Penn Women wishes to assist associate professors working for promotion to Full Professor, as well as Assistant Professors seeking promotion to the permanent rank of Associate Professor.
If you are interested in applying for the stipend, submit a two-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 describe how you will use the award and why it would be particularly useful to you at this time. Also, we require that you indicate whether you have other sources of research funding. Those who have previously applied and did not receive an award are encouraged to apply again. 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: Monday, April 1, 2013
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 2013, 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.
*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.
