JACOB E. NYENHUIS
STUDENT/FACULTY COLLABORATIVE SUMMER RESEARCH GRANTS
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 8:00 AM January 11, 2016
Program Description: The Jacob E. Nyenhuis faculty development summer research grant program is funded through the generosity of many donors who have established a collection of endowed funds to support faculty and, in some cases, their student collaborators in their development as scholars. The program is named for Provost Emeritus Jacob E. Nyenhuis, whose diligent efforts to promote faculty scholarship have resulted in a climate of scholarly excellence notable for a liberal arts college that prioritizes teaching as its highest purpose.
Award: $7,200 maximum for up to 8 summer weeks. One award (up to $14,400) will be made for a convergent collaboration of two faculty from two different departments (ideally from two different divisions) working with two student collaborators.
