College of Arts and Sciences announces Faculty Enhancement Program awardees

Submitted by Laura Hohenbary

The College of Arts and Sciences has announced the Faculty Enhancement Program awardees for fiscal year 2024.

The purpose of the program is to increase the numbers and proportion of faculty members engaging in research, scholarship and creative activities, particularly those with the potential for garnering extramural funding and recognition. The program provides up to $10,000 each for faculty in disciplines that have not historically enjoyed access to substantial start-up or extramural funding opportunities.

The following are the awardees and their project titles:

  • Rubaiyat Alam, economics, "Search frictions, conduct differences, and provider competition in decentralized markets: Evidence from hospice care."
  • Keisha Clark, social transformation studies, "Freedom Pathways: Honoring the Journeys of Black Women in the Military."
  • Marjorie Galelli, history, "Searching for Victory."

Tenure-earning faculty members within three years of hire were eligible to apply for funding for summer salary and research support. Applicants identified a particular project culminating in a scholarly work that would enhance their research capabilities. The funding provided by the program will be complemented by mentoring from a senior colleague at K-State.
