The FRGs, awarded in two rounds over the course of the academic year, are intended to support the scholarly or artistic engagement of faculty in areas of research, artistic projects, and writing. These may include conference attendance, exhibitions, publication costs, performances, international or domestic travel, equipment costs, and other such needs associated with professional development beyond the classroom. $3000 maximum.
The FTGs, awarded in one round each academic year, are intended to support initiatives aimed at teaching or reflection on pedagogical practices or other related applications. Consequently, proposals may be directed toward unusual expenses associated with the creation of new courses or restructuring of existing courses, new equipment for teaching, interdisciplinary collaborations, conferences focused on pedagogy, summer seminars on issues related to student learning (like community-based research, student-faculty collaborations, and study abroad advancement), as well as other projects of similar scope that enhance the teaching of faculty members. $5000 maximum.
@$8,000. Tenured and tenure track members of the faculty members are eligible to apply. The Newton Chun Award is intended to provide a Kenyon faculty member the opportunity to undertake the scholarship on which their continuing development as teacher-scholars depends. Key Statement: The award supports research and artistic projects of exceptional merit and promise.
The FAC may select up to two faculty members to be Kenyon College’s nominees to apply for the $6,000 National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipend. The FAC may choose not to nominate anyone if they feel the proposals are not of a standard that reflects well upon the quality of the Kenyon College faculty.
Midwest Faculty Seminars
Each year, the University of Chicago hosts four Midwest Faculty Seminars, consisting of three days of formal presentations, interspersed with small group discussions. The MFS programs, attended by 15-25 faculty, are intended to excite intense intellectual consideration of new scholarship by both university faculty presenters and liberal arts college faculty participants. The topics are intended to encourage cross-disciplinary discussion and inspire new avenues for research, teaching, and collaboration.
