Information about the solicitation can be found here. That page also has links to other guidelines and resources. Those interested in submitting an application should review those resources.
Full-time tenured and tenure-track faculty members must be nominated by the University to apply for a Summer Stipend. Lecturers may apply without seeking a nomination. The nomination process will be conducted using the campus's InfoReady Review portal. The internal deadline for applying for a nomination is 1 August, 2016.
Even though awards are made directly to individuals (as opposed to the University), the RSP staff is happy to assist faculty in the proposal preparation process.
