|I. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the PRF Summer Faculty Grant awards is to enable successful applicants to continue full-time scholarly work during the summer. The grant may not be held concurrently with any other appointment. PRF Summer Faculty Grants (PRF/SFG) will be distributed through the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP).
II. AWARD: Award amount is up to $8,000 for summer salary (plus associated fringe benefits) per faculty.
a. A PRF/SFG recipient can receive a faculty salary for up to two summer months (8-weeks) of employment which supports the work outlined in their proposal. Faculty must work consecutive 8 weeks on this project and may not hold another appointment during the same two month grant period.
b. While the PRF provides $8,000 salary for two summer months (eight weeks) of employment, the amount provided might not be equivalent to the full salary the recipient would receive for that time period. The academic department may supplement the grant up to the equivalent 100 percent salary that could have been received for two summer months of employment under the Guidelines for Summer Session Support issued by the Provost’s Office. The use of other sponsored research funds is not allowable. If the academic department chooses to supplement the grant, this supplement must support the purpose for which the grant was received and cannot represent additional assignments.
