Southern Connecticut State University recognizes the importance of faculty scholarship and creative activity in furthering its mission. The University is committed to expanding the array of support mechanisms for such scholarship and creative activity. The Joan Finn Junior Faculty Research Fellowships aim to provide junior faculty members with a significant amount of reassigned time at an early stage in their careers at Southern for these purposes. The Fellow may generate publication(s) from his/her dissertation or other previous research, or conduct new research or creative activity. It is expected that the Fellow will pursue work leading to a publishable article or its scientific or creative equivalent, and will make a public presentation at Southern or within the CSCU system.
Full-time, permanent untenured faculty at the assistant or associate professor rank who have completed at least one year of service at SCSU by Fall 2019 or Spring 2020 are eligible to apply for this fellowship. The applicant must hold a terminal degree in his or her field and must not have entered the tenure review process.
The attached application form and all required supporting materials must be fully completed, signed by necessary parties and submitted as one complete file in electronic format to: RSAC@southernct.edu by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.
Questions regarding the application process or other issues may be directed to Elliott Horch, Research and Scholarship Advisory Committee Chair, at email@example.com.
