    • Faculty who are also teaching during the summer are still eligible for these Summer Research Stipends. 
    • Recipients of Summer Research Stipends must submit a report documenting how they used the research stipend and what the RSCA outcome was by September 1st; they must also present the research they worked on during the summer as a virtual “brown bag” research presentation in the following academic year.  
  • Support Amount: Summer research stipends are $2000. Stipends are to be used to support writing for peer-reviewed journals and conferences, writing for books, and/or grant-writing.  Funds can be used to pay for research assistant support, software, datasets, or other equipment, transcription services, APCs, and other expenses that will advance the writing and publication of research. However, this stipend is not to be used for travel-related expenses or to attend workshops, trainings, or conferences.
