Request for Proposals- EX[L] Faculty Fellowship
$5,000 fellowship for professional development
The EX[L] Center is accepting applications from full time UA faculty members for the first annual EX[L] Faculty Fellowship. The Faculty Fellowship awards the recipient $5000 to support one year of focused professional development that aligns with both EX[L] objectives and the faculty member’s own disciplinary work.
Check back during the summer 2019 for application details.
Program to facilitate faculty research/scholarship
Recognizing the pedagogical guidance and mentoring of Political Science Professor and Director of the Center for Conflict Management, Bill Lyons, the Faculty Driven-Initiatives program is available to faculty who seek to facilitate their research/scholarship through pedagogical innovation that emphasizes experiential learning (team-based, inquiry-driven, hands-on, community-based, participatory, etc.).
All tenured, tenure track (TT), and non-tenure track (NTT) faculty are invited to apply. Check in fall 2019 for application details.
The EXL Center at UA is pleased to be able to offer small grants (up to $1000 each) to support UA courses that incorporate community engagement through community-based research and/or service-learning.
For an instructor to receive funding, the course must include all enrolled students in some form of engagement with local or regional community partners (Akron and Northeast Ohio).
- Proposals will be accepted beginning August 1, 2018.
- Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis each semester until funds are depleted. Please allow 2-3 weeks for processing and evaluation.
