Greenberg Junior Faculty Grants


Made possible through the generosity of Arnold and Beverly Greenberg, the Greenberg Junior Faculty (GJF) Grants promote high-quality scholarship (e.g., research, creative activity) by faculty members who are just beginning their careers. GJF grants are intended (1) to provide seed funds for scholarly projects that may be submitted to outside funding agencies or (2) to fund worthwhile scholarly activities of a one-time nature.

Full-time tenure-track faculty members who will be within their probationary period, but not within their tenure review year, at the time the awarded funds are used. Normally, a faculty member will not be eligible for more than two awards within the probationary period.

Amount of Award
Award recipients are provided with up to $7,550 to be applied toward course releases during the academic year and up to $2,000 for scholarship-related expenses, for a total award of up to $9,550.
