Student And Faculty Excellence (SAFE) Fund - Summer 2017

Posted 04/07/2017

The College of Arts and Sciences Student and Faculty Excellence (SAFE) Fund provides resources that can be used to transform the undergraduate and graduate experience and support faculty teaching, research, and engagement.

This year, a third funding cycle has been created for summer 2017 student stipends. These stipends are for students working with a faculty member on their scholarly research and/or creative projects. Applications must be submitted by the faculty member who will be mentoring the student. All students receiving funding are required to register for at least 1 credit hour of research, internship, or independent study per summer session funded. This course must be associated with the work the student is doing for the faculty member. Faculty must ensure that students are provided with a syllabus or other document outlining the evaluation method to be used for the course. These are state salary funds and are subject to all pertinent taxes

To apply, complete the Application Form (PDF) then email the completed application to Lauren Maltba (maltbaln) and copy Jennifer Burris (burrisjl) with SUMMER SAFE in the subject line. To be eligible for consideration for the funds, applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on Wed April 19, 2017.
