Eligibility for R&D Funding
A. Faculty Members: All faculty are eligible, including untenured, tenured, emeriti, and temporary faculty.
There are a few important exceptions:
- Visiting faculty must complete their projects by the end of their contract.
- Part-time faculty are eligible for funding in proportion to their annual teaching duties.
- Individuals on non-sabbatical leaves of absence normally are not eligible for R&D support.
- Professional development projects are not funded for emeriti faculty or faculty who are in the phased retirement program.
B. Administrators: All full-time administrative officers are eligible to apply for funds in the areas of their scholarly and teaching pursuits. R&D does not support projects that pertain to their administrative responsibilities.
