Summer Salary Research Grants, made available from an endowment to support international projects provided in part by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, will again be offered in 1996 by International Programs and Studies. Financial support is available for up to one-ninth of the applicant's academic year salary, or a maximum of $3,500, whichever is less. The grants are intended to fund both basic and applied research. To ensure that applied research is recognized, some funds will be allocated specifically to applied topics conducted by tenure-line faculty members. Proposals will be judged primarily on perceived quality. Younger scholars will be given a degree of priority. No sabbatical activities will be supported by these grants. Successful applicants are expected to spend full-time conducting research during the summer and must be employed at UIUC during the subsequent academic year. Applications are due Nov. 1. Additional information and applications are available from Sheila Roberts, 303 International Studies Building; 333-8331.
