President’s Fund for Faculty Advancement
The President’s Fund for Faculty Advancement seeks to provide faculty with the resources they need to publish or obtain external funding for their research or creative work. In response to faculty requests and in support of Hunter’s new strategic plan, we have initiated this fund to help ensure that Hunter faculty have the resources they need to advance their careers and the research mission of Hunter College. Requests that are particularly appropriate for this program include seed money (e.g. to start a new collaborative project or collect pilot data necessary to submit a major grant proposal), page charges for journal articles, funds to pay for short-term research assistance, and costs related to the creation of a book index or purchase of specialized datasets, software, or other scholarly materials necessary to complete a publishable scholarly or creative project.
Full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty in the five schools and the library are eligible to apply.
