Junior Faculty Research Fellowship

The Junior Faculty Research Fellowship is automatically granted to all Main Campus tenure-line assistant professors, except those in the MSB, as part of their appointments. This Fellowship provides one semester leave at full pay for full-time work on research with no responsibilities for teaching or service. The purpose is to enable the completion of work that will contribute to the evaluation of the application for tenure and promotion. The Fellowship typically is taken in the third or fourth year on the tenure track. 

The Fellowship period counts as a semester of service toward both the tenure probationary period and sabbatical eligibility.

Application deadline: November 1, 2021
