SSAC application deadlines listed

The fourth deadline for submission of applications to the Senate Scholarly Activities Committee (SSAC) is Tuesday, Feb. 15. Research/Creative Activity and Publication grant applications, as well as applications for New Faculty Scholar Awards, will be considered at that time. No travel applications will be considered during the fourth (Feb. 15) awards cycle. Late applications will not be accepted.

The fifth deadline for submission of applications is Friday, April 29. Travel applications will be considered at that time only for travel that will occur between May 1 and Sept. 15. No other applications will be considered during the fifth (April 30, 2010) awards cycle. Late applications will not be accepted.

The Committee reminds applicants to carefully prepare their proposals and be specific and realistic in their budget requests. The proposal should be written with a multidisciplinary readership in mind. Avoid technical jargon and undefined abbreviations. Although the SSAC encourages submission of research/creative activity proposals and travel/publication requests, the Committee takes into consideration the most recent SSAC award granted to each applicant. Priority will be given to beginning faculty and first-time applicants. Requests for research/creative activity awards may not exceed $2,500.

Application forms are available on RD&C’s Homepage (on UND’s Homepage under “Research”). A properly signed original and eleven copies of the application must be submitted to RD&C on or prior to the published deadline. New Faculty Scholar Applicants must also submit their application electronically to julie.solheim@research.und.edu. Late applications will not be accepted. Applications that are not prepared in accordance with the directions on the forms will not be considered by the Committee. Please feel free to contact any of the current SSAC members for information or guidance when preparing your application. Their names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses are available on RD&C’s Homepage or by calling RD&C at 777-4278.
