John W. Fisher Faculty Research Fellowship: April 8

The John W. Fisher Faculty Research Fellowship Committee invites proposals to fund research in American Business or American Politics, broadly defined. These fellowships are available to any tenured, or tenure-line, faculty member. Each fellowship carries a stipend of $3,000.00, used at the discretion of the recipient between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012. Recipients will provide a report of the results from their funded research.

The proposals will be evaluated by the Fisher Research Fellowship Selection Committee: Michael Maggiotto, Dean, College of Sciences and Humanities; Rajib Sanyal, Dean, Miller College of Business; Mr. David Bahlmann, President, Ball State University Foundation; and Anca Cotet Assistant Professor, Department of Economics. As this year’s committee chair, I invite proposals from interested faculty members.

The intent of the Fisher Fellowships is to provide support to scholars who have research projects in advanced stages. Thus, a major criterion in the evaluation of a proposal is the extent to which a researcher will use the Fisher Fellowship to bring his or her project to completion. Previous recipients of a Fisher Fellowship must wait two academic years before submitting another proposal to the competition. Faculty in the Miller College of Business who are receiving New Faculty Summer Stipends are not eligible to apply for the Fisher Fellowship.

An application form is attached and should be electronically submitted to your Department Chair with your application materials. After review and approval, the Chair will electronically forward your materials to Susan Miller, Secretary to the Dean, College of Sciences and Humanities. The form may also be obtained on-line: Click Here for Application

The deadline for the receipt of proposal is 5:00 pm, Friday, April 8, 2011. If you have questions, please contact Susan Miller. Thank you for your interest and cooperation.
