Summer Stipend Opportunities

The Western Illinois University Foundation and the Office of Sponsored Projects will award up to twelve summer stipends in the amount of $3,000 each for Summer 2013. Additional support is possible from the Office of Sponsored Projects. These grants provide opportunities for faculty to engage in projects leading to the professional advancement of the proposal writer and the enhancement of Western Illinois University in the areas of teaching, research and creative activity. While teaching, research, and creative activities are expected of every faculty member, the summer stipend is intended to allow faculty to pursue projects well beyond those which can normally be pursued during the academic year.

Proposals are encouraged in a wide range of categories including, but not limited to:  research leading to publication; development of a significant curriculum proposal; creation of work leading to a performance or exhibition; mastery of a new instructional technique; and research required to prepare an application to an external granting agency.

The selection committee will pay special attention to the "expected outcomes" section of the proposal to ensure that substantial outcomes result from the stipend-funded project.

Proposals for summer stipends must be submitted to the Foundation Office in 303 Sherman Hall, no later than noon on Tuesday, September 25.

Proposals must follow the guidelines and policies set forth by the committee.  The committee will only consider applications that follow the guidelines, supply important information, present scholarly quality, and meet the application deadline.  Examples of successfully funded proposals can be found on the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching website at wiu.edu/CITR/resources/summer_stipend.sphp
