Announcing the Fall 2014/Spring 2015 CURS Scholar-in-Residence Opportunity

With support from the Dean’s Office, College of Arts & Sciences, the Center for Urban & Regional Studies (CURS) is pleased to solicit applications again for its Scholar-in-Residence Program. The CURS Scholar-in-Residence Program provides an opportunity for faculty members in the College of Arts & Sciences to concentrate on developing major research proposals by providing funds for a course buyout and for proposal development expenses.  In addition, the CURS Scholar-in-Residence will have full administrative support from the Center’s financial and clerical support staff.  This opportunity will be provided during either the fall semester 2014 or spring semester 2015 based on the candidate’s preference.  Nina Martin from the Department of Geography is the fall 2013 Scholar-in-Residence. As a result, faculty members from Geography are ineligible for the fall 2014/spring 2015 program.

Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m., Monday February 3, 2014.  The candidates will be notified of the outcome of the selection process in late February 2014.
