Academic Affairs Summer Faculty Fellowships

The Faculty Summer Research Fellowships foster scholarship among full-time teaching faculties of the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Law. The award is intended to relieve a faculty member from his/her summer teaching and other obligations in order to afford the opportunity to conduct research and pursue scholarly goals during the summer months. In addition, recipients must continue employment at Creighton for at least one year after the award or return the entire monetary award to the University. Faculty may not apply for a Summer Fellowship that would be contiguous with a sabbatical leave.

Eligibility. The Faculty Summer Research Fellowship will be offered only to persons who are full-time, tenure-track faculty holding a terminal degree in their field. Traditionally, the award includes a stipend of $4,300, plus direct costs up to a maximum of $500. Faculty who received a summer fellowship the previous year are not eligible for summer fellowship funding in the following year. These awards are not intended for the support of course work or work toward an advanced degree. Under ordinary circumstances, this grant is not intended to support the writing of manuscripts as a singular activity.

Interested faculty should contact Dr. Juliane Strauss-Soukup at 402-280-3265 or
