The Langsam/Belle (formerly Langsam/Oswalt) Faculty Award supports a summer fellowship for non-tenure track, full-time teaching faculty to allow them to take a summer “sabbatical” from teaching to pursue professional development activities.   This award is for $6,000, and can be used for summer salary (including required withholdings).

NOTE:  The timeline on this award application has been moved to late November to give departments more time to change summer teaching schedules, as necessary.

Application:

Applications may be by individuals or by departments/programs and must detail proposed professional development activity that supports their teaching mission.  Activities supported by this award include those that lead to scholarly dissemination of knowledge about teaching, curriculum development projects, and other activities of long-term professional benefit to the teacher and the unit, including related travel and/or conference expenses as well as library and equipment acquisitions.  A committee appointed by the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts shall determine the recipient of the Fellowship based on the merit of the proposal.

Eligibility:

Candidates must be non-tenure track, full time teaching faculty of the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI and have worked in this capacity for a minimum of three years. Visiting faculty are not eligible for this Fellowship. This Fellowship can be received in conjunction with other funding.

Proposal: 

Submit the following:

• A maximum of a three-page proposal detailing the activity and at least one letter of support. The entire proposal may not exceed more than 5 pages. 

• A current CV (does not count in page limit). 

Submit all required documents, electronically, to the Dean's Office, libarqst@iupui.edu by 5:00 p.m. on the last business day in November.

This award is to support travel by junior faculty to professional/scholarly meetings. Any tenure-track assistant professor in the School of Liberal Arts is eligible. Each award amount is up to $500, although in extraordinary circumstances a higher amount may be requested. Expenses that are eligible to be covered include any normal travel costs or conference fees incurred while attending a professional and/or scholarly meeting to make presentations or participate in panels that enhance the professional development of faculty as scholars or teachers.

Send a letter of application explaining the purpose of the travel and the benefit to you along with a breakdown of expenses and the amount for which you are asking to the Dean's Office (libarqst@iupui.edu). Submissions should be no longer than two pages.  Electronic submissions should be received no later than the first Monday in April at 5:00 pm.
