George Grauel Faculty Fellowship: Fellowships are available on a competitive basis to support tenured or tenure-track faculty in their research for either one full semester at full salary or one full year at half-salary.
- Category A Fellowships are primarily research-oriented and should result in a paper, a publication such as a book, monograph, short story, or refereed journal article.
- Category B Fellowships are devoted to other types of faculty development, such as writing textbooks, curriculum development, coursework devoted to getting up to the current level of research in one’s field, retooling in another field of research, academic service-oriented activities, or other professional activities.
The deadline to submit applications for the 2015-2016 academic year is Monday, October 20, 2014. Application forms will be available by late summer.
Summer Research Fellowship: Fellowships are available in two categories on a competitive basis to provide support for faculty research during the summer:
- Category A fellowships ($5,000) provide a stipend for a summer research project on a full-time basis with the expectation of a submission to a high-quality, refereed journal or an equivalent standard of intellectual contribution.
- Category B fellowships ($3,500) allow faculty to teach no more than one course in one summer session only. This fellowship is available to Arts and Sciences tenured or tenure-track faculty. The deadline to submit applications for Summer 2015 is Monday, September 22, 2014. Application forms will be available by late summer.
Summer Teaching Fellowship: Fellowships are available in two categories on a competitive basis to support faculty engagement in pedagogical scholarship in ways that improve the classroom experience, provide models for effective teaching, and pioneer new teaching methods. Projects would result in a tangible product such as publication in a teaching-oriented journal or a presentation at a conference, in addition to reporting to colleagues in the following academic year via lunch discussions, Celebration of Scholarship panels, newsletter articles, and/or web postings.
- Category A fellowships ($5,000) provide a stipend for a teaching project on a full-time basis and so the recipient may not teach during any summer session.
- Category B fellowships ($3,500) presume the project is of the quality of Category A, but require less time to complete and so allow faculty members to teach only one course during the summer session.
These fellowships are available to tenured or tenure-track faculty. The deadline to submit applications for Summer 2015 is Monday, Feb. 9, 2015. Awards will be announced by mid-April.
Faculty Technology Fellowships: Summer Fellowships ($3,500) are available on a competitive basis to support tenured or tenure-track full-time faculty in incorporating the use of new technologies in teaching or research. These projects would have the potential to provide models for effective use of technology in pioneering new pedagogy, new scholarship, or even shifting teaching and scholarship paradigms within the institution. Fellows are expected to engage in scholarly activity that would result in a tangible product. During the following academic year, recipients are expected to implement the use of these technologies, to assist their colleagues in adopting or gaining proficiency with these technologies, and to present their results to their colleagues via lunch discussions, Celebration of Scholarship panels, web postings, newsletter articles, or other venues. Recipients may not teach during any summer session. The deadline to submit applications for Summer 2015 is Monday, Feb. 9, 2015.
Summer Course Development Fellowships: Full and partial fellowships are available to full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty to support the development of courses pertaining to Catholic Studies and to Jesuits; full fellowships are available for developing courses pertaining to diversity.

Online Course Development Grants for Summer Session: Grants of $2000 are available to support the development of an online course to be taught in the Summer.

Faculty who are awarded the grant are obligated to: 1) provide a preliminary course syllabus by January 31, 2015 for linking to the summer course schedule; 2) attend a meeting with the Director of the Center for Digital Media to coordinate technology support; 3) offer the course in one of the summer sessions immediately following the awarding of the grant (and so, obtain approval from the Department Chair for the course to be listed on the departmental schedule). The deadline to submit applications is Friday, November 14, 2014.
