Big 12 Faculty Fellowship Program now accepting applications

Submitted by Tanya Gonzalez

Please bring to the attention of your faculty the opportunity to apply for a Big 12 Faculty Fellowship Award for the 2022-2023 academic year.

Faculty members may apply to either a regular fellowship award or a mentoring fellowship award. Both fellowships provide up to $2,500 for expenses related to a visit by a faculty member to another Big 12 institution. Detailed information about the applications for this award is available on the Office of the Provost homepage. The deadline for submission of the applications to the Office of the Provost is Feb. 1, 2022, and should be submitted electronically in PDF format to provounivawards@k-state.edu. Notification will be provided to faculty by June 15, 2022. These awards are an excellent opportunity for all faculty to increase their network of collaborators and use resources available at other institutions.

Please note that a letter of invitation from the host institution must accompany the application, so faculty should not delay in contacting appropriate individuals with which to collaborate. If a faculty member is not acquainted with possible collaborators in their discipline at other Big 12 schools, we ask that you assist them in identifying and contacting the necessary individuals. The provost's office also may be used as a resource in providing names of individuals to contact.

The list of the faculty who have participated in this program since it began in spring 1997 includes each individual's name, department, a short description of the project and the Big 12 university visited. This may give your faculty an idea of the variety of projects which have been funded.

Please contact me at tgonzal@k-state.edu if you have any questions. Your assistance in encouraging faculty to take advantage of this opportunity is very important. Thanks for your help.
