Regents' Junior Faculty Fellowships

Summer 2019

It is a pleasure to bring to the attention of junior faculty members the Regents' Junior Faculty Fellowships for the summer of 2019. These fellowships provide summer salary awards in the amount of $5,000 for junior faculty, to be paid on August 1, 2019.

The submissions are due by 11:59 P.M. on Friday, April 12, 2019.

Guidelines:

  1. Eligibility is limited to academic year appointees in the ranks of Assistant Professor, Acting Assistant Professor, Acting Associate Professor, and, in the School of Law, Acting Professor. Individuals known to be in their last year of UC employment and those who have been recommended for promotion to tenure effective July 1, 2019, are ineligible. 

  2. The proposed project should provide an opportunity for educational enrichment through significant research, advanced or independent study, or improvement of teaching effectiveness. 

  3. Individuals are limited to one of these fellowships during their career. 

  4. Recipients of the award are expected to devote their time exclusively to the specific effort funded. Compensation for additional work integral to the research or study for which the Fellowship was awarded is allowed as long as total compensation for the summer does not exceed 3/9ths of the annual 9-month rate. A recipient should not accept compensation for other University services, (e.g. Summer Session teaching) and should not receive other major support for the same period. (e.g. Guggenheim or Fulbright fellowships.)
