Theodore and Jane Norman Fund for Faculty Scholarship

The Theodore and Jane Norman Awards for Faculty Scholarship support faculty research, creative projects or course development.

Awards of up to $3,500 per academic year are available for direct project-related expenses such as use of collections, acquisition of data, publication and open access charges, travel, rental or purchase of equipment, preparation of manuscripts including indexing, hiring undergraduate or graduate student research assistants, purchasing of scholarly materials, supplies and services, publication subventions (please upload documentation from the publisher) and book manuscript and article workshops.

Norman Funds can also be used for professional development programs including the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity's Faculty Success Program. Please see the Norman Funds policy for additional information.

For funds to attend a scholarly meeting when you are presenting, please apply for a Faculty Travel Award.
