Internal Research Awards

Faculty Research Fellowship and Sabbatical Proposals Due on January 31st, 2023

Faculty Research Fellowships (FRF) and Sabbaticals

Are grant proposal rejections getting you down? Eighty percent of faculty who come to these sessions receive the award, because they get up-to-date information on writing a successful proposal and get important feedback on how their proposals will be reviewed by a general academic audience. Our second round of presentations focuses on applying for sabbaticals and faculty research fellowships (applications due January 31st), intending to both inform attendees on the application process itself and provide feedback on any materials provided. If interested in attending , please register below!


Workshops on Applying for Sabbaticals and Faculty Research Fellowships (FRFs):

The Faculty Research Fellowships and Sabbaticals are intended to encourage and support the research, creative, artistic, and scholarly endeavors of full-time tenured or tenure-track EMU faculty by providing released-time awards (fall and winter semesters) for outstanding proposals. The Faculty Development Center will support EMU faculty in their applications for Faculty Research Fellowships (FRF) and Sabbaticals by hosting workshops focusing on helping you write a strong proposal.  

When: Thursday, January 12, 3:30-4:45 PM
Where: 109 Halle and Zoom

Facilitated by Alexis Braun Marks (University Archivist) and Natalie Dove (Department of Psychology)

This session intends to inform attendees on the application process and strategies for writing a proposal. This session will give you an opportunity to hear about how awards are judged, common pitfalls to avoid, and ways to make your application as appealing as possible to the audience that will be evaluating it.  There will be ample time provided to answer your questions.
