SLCL is again offering summer research fellowships for specialized faculty members. These fellowships ($3,000 in research funds) are designed to support summer research by specialized faculty and academic professionals, as part of SLCL's commitment to their research progress. Please note this competition is not meant to support curriculum development.

Three fellows will be chosen for summer 2025.  The proposals will be judged by an ad-hoc committee, which will include tenure track and specialized faculty members.


  • Quality of the research proposal, in relation to its scope and methodology
  • Broader impact of the project for the university and the school
  • Feasibility of the project within the summer time frame
  • Prior fellowship support (preference will be given to faculty who have not received this fellowship before)


  1. Two-page CV
  2. Brief statement of research and work plan for the summer period (maximum two pages, double-spaced, one-inch margins, 12-point font). Please briefly address how the research benefits you as well as your SLCL unit and the school in general.
  3. EO endorsement (please discuss plans with EO and if he/she agrees, include the sentence “Prof. XXX, Head of XXX, endorses this proposal”)

Deadline: Friday, April 4, 2025 by 5:00 p.m
