Kenyon Summer Stipends
This year, FAC is making available up to two (2) Kenyon Summer Stipends. These $4,000 salary awards recognize major research and artistic projects of exceptional merit and promise. Kenyon Summer Stipends are designed to support a minimum of six weeks uninterrupted writing, research, or artistic work. (These salary awards differ from faculty development and teaching initiative grants in that they are paid through payroll with appropriate taxes withheld. No budget is required with the proposal.)
Tenured and tenure-track members of the faculty are eligible to apply for Kenyon Summer Stipends. Awardees may apply for other grants administered by FAC as long as those applications are for projects substantially different from the summer stipend project. Recipients of Kenyon Summer Stipends may not reapply for the summer stipend for a period of three years, however, recipients will remain eligible for Faculty Development Grants and Teaching Initiative Grants. The committee will not consider multiple applications. Kenyon Summer Stipends may not be used to attend conferences, workshops, or educational institutes.
Applications must include the following:
1. A summary cover sheet available from the Provost's website under Forms and Guidelines.
2. A detailed project statement of not more than ten double-spaced pages. Applicants involved in artistic production may include a portfolio of past and current work as part of this project statement. No budget is required.
The project statement should clearly explain:
- the importance of the project to the Member's discipline;
- the relationship of the project to the work of the Member and the College;
- a discussion of the work to be undertaken during the tenure of the award along with a timetable; and
- the expected results of the project.
3. A current vita (two pages only).
4. In particular cases, the committee may request further information.
5. All information must be in electronic format. E-mail to Darlene Tedrow as attachments.
Following completion of the stipend project, recipients must submit a detailed report of the work undertaken. Because stipends are treated as income, no accounting of expenditures or receipts is required. Recipients who have not submitted a report for the Kenyon Summer Stipend are ineligible for all subsequent funding from the Faculty Affairs Committee until the report is delivered.
