OAR Research Awards 2017
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
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 the following 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 (2014, 2015, and 2016) will be awarded up to two courses of reassigned time during the 2017 – 2018 academic year (pg 2).
- 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).
Please note: The Faculty Mid-Career Research Support Program is no longer administered as a recognition award. It is now administered as part of the Provost’s Workload Mitigation Program.
Award information will be available to faculty beginning Wednesday, December 14, 2016, and all applications are due by Thursday, February 16, 2017. Late applications will not be considered. All applications must be submitted in electronic format to OAR, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the above awards, OAR promotes faculty success through several ongoing funding programs. Applications to these programs are accepted from full-time faculty on a rolling basis (with the exception of the Senior Scholar Release Program and Faculty Mid-Career Research Support Program, for which applications are accepted between 4 January and 15 March). Applications are reviewed during the first full week of each calendar month, with decisions returned to applicants by the second Thursday of each calendar month. Funding is offered through the diverse selection of ten distinct award programs listed at http://www.jjay.cuny.edu/oar-funding-opportunities.
