The Walter Harrison Faculty Development Grants are intended to serve the needs of mid to late career faculty and the University of Hartford by supporting significant scholarly efforts. These efforts should advance the career of the faculty member, raise the profile of the institution, and advance the mission of the University of Hartford. Funds may be used for purposes consistent with the activities of the grant, including but not limited to:
Full-time faculty of the University of Hartford who have been awarded tenure or, in the case of ETC or Clinical/Applied faculty, passed the comprehensive review. Faculty members may not receive a Harrison Grant in conjunction with a Sabbatical Leave or a Coffin Grant. Faculty members are welcome to apply for all three of these funds but may accept only one.
Award recipients are provided with up to $8,000 to be applied towards endeavors described in their application.
