Lightsey Fellowship Proposals Deadline

Dr. and Mrs. Harry M. Lightsey, Jr. established the Lightsey Fellowship in 1999 to provide support for junior faculty members in the humanities in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities. Awards will be made from competitive proposals for research projects, which will advance their work in scholarship. Proposals are to be peer reviewed by the CAAH Research Committee with the final results approved by the Dean.

 The program is designed to provide support to early career faculty members to assist them in focusing their time and energy toward further development of their research agenda. For the current year up to two awards will be made with each selected faculty member receiving a $4,500 research stipend. The money can be used for summer salary or for other expenses directly related to the research initiative.

All submissions should be sent in electronic form to your department chair, who will forward them with comments to the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies @
