Faculty Grant-in-Aid Awards Each year, the Islamic Studies Program offers awards to support faculty travel, research, subventions for scholarly manuscripts, etc. The program usually offers a limited number of competitive awards each grant cycle. Award amounts vary and depend upon our budget. Grant-in-aid awardees are selected based on need and relevance of the project to Islamic Studies (broadly defined).
All tenured, tenure-track and visiting faculty (including lecturers and professors of practice) with full-time appointments and multi-year contracts on the Bloomington campus are eligible to apply. Faculty in other Indiana University campuses, full-time faculty on research appointments, one-year visiting faculty, as well as retirees are ineligible. The Program requests that award recipients acknowledge our support in any product of their research, if applicable.
The deadline for the fall AY2016-17 funding cycle has passed. We hope to have a new cycle of funding in the spring of 2017.
The Islamic Studies Program supported two IU faculty in AY2015-16 and five in the fall 2016 cycle.
