Goddard Award Application:
1) Proposal: To apply for these funds, faculty must develop a short proposal of no more than two to three pages, discuss it with their Department Chair (and have it approved by him/her), then submit it to the Office of Faculty Affairs. As needed, feedback will be provided with any suggestions deemed appropriate and, upon revision, shortly thereafter the faculty member will receive notice of the application's approval.
a) The proposal should include:
i) the purpose of the project;
ii) a list of questions or issues that will be addressed to carry the project to completion;
iii) a brief outline of the methodology used in carrying out this work;
iv) a budget: if the Goddard monies are not used to offset the costs related to hiring an adjunct for additional course relief, faculty will be required to submit an itemized budget of the proposed expenses related to the Goddard project;
v) a timeline for completion of the proposed project.
2) Proposal submission deadline: the proposal is generally due two weeks after the Dean has sent out the third year review.
3) Report: At the conclusion of the leave, each Goddard Fellow will be required to submit a brief report of their activities to the Dean.
