Greenberg Junior Faculty Grants


Made possible through the generosity of Arnold and Beverly Greenberg, the Greenberg Junior Faculty (GJF) Grants promote high-quality scholarship (e.g., research, creative activity) by faculty members who are just beginning their careers. GJF grants are intended (1) to provide seed funds for scholarly projects that may be submitted to outside funding agencies or (2) to fund worthwhile scholarly activities of a one-time nature.

Full-time tenure-track faculty members who will be within their probationary period, but not within their tenure review year, at the time the awarded funds are used. Normally, a faculty member will not be eligible for more than two awards within the probationary period.

Amount of Award
Grants may be used for up to two course releases during the academic year. Additionally, the applicant may request up to $2,500 for scholarship-related expenses (e.g., student assistants, travel for collaboration or conference presentations, software, hardware, supplies, etc.).
