Summer 2024

The TAMIU ARC will support a Summer Faculty Development Program. This effort will develop a rich milieu where faculty upon returning from their summer development experience will be able to enrich their research and teaching at the graduate level. The Summer Faculty Development Program will provide up to seven weeks of summer support of travel and living expenses. Applications for short-duration workshops (minimum one week) that can have a high impact on research will be considered as will visiting other institutions to conduct research for a longer duration up to a maximum of seven weeks. Total funding exists to provide travel support for a faculty member for up to seven weeks. Given last year’s restrictions we have money to fund fully two requests. Note that this program does provide both travel and summer salary support.
