Purpose: This program provides summer stipends for Arts, Humanities and Social Science faculty research and scholarship activities to interpret and enhance disciplinary knowledge in areas where extramural funds are generally not available. $10,000 (less taxes and benefits) will be provided so that the awardee may pursue scholarly/creative activities. This program is available to University of Cincinnati appointed faculty only.

Note: Faculty seeking financial support for research should apply for the URC Faculty Research Cost Support Awards program. Only one application to either the URC Faculty Research Cost Support Awards program or the URC AHSS Faculty Research and Scholarship Stipend Award program may be submitted per faculty member.

Eligibility: All Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences faculty, not just AAUP-represented faculty, at the University of Cincinnati (including adjunct faculty) who have at least an 80% FTE appointment are eligible.  Visiting faculty are not eligible. Faculty at UC’s affiliates: CCHMC, VA and Shriners are not eligible. Faculty who received URC funding in the past 3 years for the Faculty Research Grant program or the Interdisciplinary program are not eligible. Faculty who received an award more than 3 years ago and wish to pursue a new area of research or scholarly activity are eligible. URC awardees must be willing to serve on two of the URC faculty awards or student/faculty collaboration awards review committees, based on needs, for a period of 3 years following the year of the award.

Funding Priorities: Proposals will be evaluated primarily based on the scholarly and creative merit of the proposed activities, the innovativeness, and the capabilities of the principal investigator.

Awards: Awards are limited to $10,000 (less taxes and benefits)
