Summer Fellowships at Canisius College are funded in multiple ways. These include the Faculty Fellowship Program outlined in the Faculty Handbook (Chapter 7, Section B), Mission and Identity Fellowships, and CAS Dean’s summer grants. This documentation serves as guidelines for a central application process for each of these means of supporting faculty summer efforts.

Applications are open to faculty in all three schools though only faculty in CAS are eligible for the CAS Dean's summer grants.

All applications will be reviewed by the department, the dean, and the Summer Research Fellowship Selection Committee. The CAS dean, the office of mission & identity, and the vice president for academic affairs will make funding decisions based on the recommendations of these reviews and the funding line they each administer. The assistant vice president for academic affairs (faculty development) will oversee the application and review process. 

The amount awarded is a $5000 salary stipend. This stipend will be divided across co-recipients for collaborative applications. 

Open to full-time faculty members who have completed at least two academic years of full-time service at Canisius College.
