OAR Research Awards 2014


The Office for the Advancement of Research (OAR) is dedicated to working with faculty in the pursuit of their research and scholarly goals, and is available to assist faculty in grant-seeking and publication activities.  Faculty members are encouraged to consult with OAR on any aspect of these processes. OAR recognizes faculty achievement through several award programs, including:

·         The Faculty Scholarly Excellence Award: Up to five tenure-track or tenured faculty who have demonstrated exceptional scholarship in the previous three calendar years (2011, 2012, and 2013) will be awarded two courses of reassigned time during the 2014 – 2015 academic year (pg. 2).

·         The Faculty Mid-Career Research Support Program: Two courses of reassigned time will be awarded to three “mid-career” faculty (those in the first three years post-tenure) to support their research during the 2014 – 2015 academic year. Faculty who receive this award should use the time for high-quality research, scholarship and/or grant submissions, and the awards will be based upon the quality of the proposed research agenda for the upcoming year, as well as a history of scholarly productivity (pg. 4).

·         The Donal EJ MacNamara Junior Faculty Award: An award of $2,000 is given to an instructor or assistant professor who has made a significant scholarly contribution in the preceding two years to the fields of criminal justice or criminology (broadly defined) (pg. 5).

Award information and application instructions will be available to faculty beginning Monday, December 16, 2013, and all applications are due by Thursday, February 20, 2014.  Late applications will not be considered. All applications must be submitted in electronic format to OAR, oar@jjay.cuny.edu.

In addition to the above awards, OAR has funds available to further research and scholarship for full time faculty and Center Directors.  The funds include a special support program that provides: 1) emergency funds - limited support for research that is urgent and addressing a time sensitive issue; and 2) seed money – funds to support pilot work necessary to pursue major grant applications to an external funding agency. OAR also has created special funds to support: 1) peer review of in progress grant applications; and 2) open-access to faculty published journal articles in major scholarly journals.
