Sabbatical Research Fund


The college has established a Sabbatical Research Fund to support research expenditures of faculty who have been approved for sabbatical leave for the 2018-19 academic year. The funds are to be used for research-related purposes only, and they must further the specific research proposal for which the faculty member was granted a sabbatical.

All funds granted must be used for the direct support of sabbatical research projects and cannot be used to support research activities that are routinely supported through departmental funds (e.g., travel to conferences, etc.), nor taken as direct salary.  Funds also cannot support travel to a location where a faculty member will live during sabbatical, nor for ordinary living expenses at a sabbatical location. 

Example of expenses that are not eligible to be covered:

  • Travel from UK to sabbatical location
  • Ordinary living expenses (i.e. rent, utilities, interent, phone)

All funds must be expended prior to June 30 of the academic year awarded, i.e. June 30, 2019 for academic year 2018-19.   Awards may not exceed $3,000, (or $5,000 for the first sabbatical following promotion to the rank of Associate Professor) and will likely average $2,500.

Such requests may be submitted at any time (include "Application Cover Sheet ") and will be reviewed promptly.  Requests may be in the form of a letter or e-mail with a brief budget and justification. 

Please submit to Carrie Oser, Interim Associate Dean for Research at and copied to Camille Harmon at   All requests must be submitted via email.  If you have questions please call 257-1375 or visit us in 202 POT.
