CURS Offers Scholar-in-Residence Program

With support from the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts & Sciences, the Center for Urban and Regional Studies (CURS) is pleased to solicit applications 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 2018 or spring semester 2019 based on the candidate’s preference. Todd BenDor from the Department of City and Regional Planning is our Scholar-in-Residence for 2017-18. As a result, faculty from that department are ineligible for the Fall 2018/Spring 2019 program. The complete details of the program and applications are available at

DEADLINE: Applications are due no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. The candidates will be notified of the outcome of the selection process in mid-March 2018.
