Consideration for this grant shall be given to Indiana State University Women tenure track faculty who meet the following criteria:
faculty member(s) shall be women
Assistant Professor rank, who have successfully completed their first-year review
who will benefit from travel and research money that will enable them to develop a research project which is related to their professional field and which can lead to promotion and tenure at Indiana State University
Selection Procedure: recipients of the Zietlow Women Faculty Research Grant shall be selected based on the criteria and on the recommendations of a grants committee appointed by the Provost, which is chaired by a representative from Women's Studies and which includes a majority of tenured women faculty from throughout the University. APPLICATION
The committee will consider applications from pre-tenure women faculty who have completed their first year review successfully, with primary consideration given to the quality of the application narrative itself, and the strength of the project described (potential scholarly contribution, contribution to the tenure decision, the actual work to be undertaken). criteria generally consist of a narrative (include a reearch plan, immediate and future goals for the project, indicate contribution of the project to scholarship in the field as well as importance related to tenure decision) and C.V. accompanied by a letter of support from the Department Chair.
Statement from Charlotte Zietlow:
This endowment is intended as a stipend to support non-tenured women faculty at Indiana STate University as they pursue research and personal development in their professional field which will assist them towards promotion and tenure at Indiana State University. It is my perception that financial assistance for faculty at this stage of their careers is not widely available and can be of significant importance as they develop their portfolios. No doubt the same is true for male faculty, but my experience is that women have historically had a harder row to hoe in academia, and frequently have to balance home and career to a greater extent than their male counterparts. I would hope this would give them one additional tool to help them move forward in their teaching, research and service to Indiana State University, and to the learning community in general.
