Arts & Sciences Faculty Teaching & Research Award (ASTRA)

The Astra award is a faculty development award initiated by the College to support travel, teaching innovations and provide seed money for faculty research/creative activity projects.  The intent is to provide limited funds to encourage innovations in teaching, and scholarly activities. Applications will be accepted 3 times a year.

Funds are limited so that no faculty may receive more than $1000 per year.  No more than $500 of the $1000 may be for travel.  Research support is provided for seed projects in preparation for external funding or in areas where no other sources of funding are available.  These funds are not a replacement for the university's Faculty Research and Travel Fund.  The ASTRA award is not intended for general computer upgrading or the purchase of classroom equipment.

After completing the applicant form, applicants will need to have their chair complete and sign the chair's portion of the application.  Faculty should assure that both forms are returned to the College prior to the due dates.

ASTRA Deadlines:
September 18, 2009
December 18, 2009
March 12, 2010

Late submissions will not be considered.
