The University of Virginia Library is calling for proposals for two faculty programs:
Course Enrichment Grants provide support to faculty who would like to enhance students’ abilities to seek, evaluate, manage, and use information and data, as well as create new types of media-rich class assignments. Recipients receive a $2,500 award and dedicated support from experienced librarians, technologists, or other library staff.
- Open to anyone holding a faculty appointment at the University of Virginia who is teaching a semester-long course (Fall 2020; J-Term, Spring, Summer 2021).
Faculty Research Sprints offer an intensive work environment for faculty who want to concentrate their energies on a new or existing project. Individuals or teams get the undivided attention of a team of librarians for projects related to any phase or aspect of their research, scholarship, or teaching.
- Open to anyone holding a faculty appointment as well as senior professional research staff at the University of Virginia.
- Sprint week: May 11-15, 2020.
- Course Enrichment Grants — Application deadline, March 2, 2020; Notifications, March 30, 2020.
- Research Sprints — Application deadline, February 14, 2020; Notifications, March 13, 2020.
