Faculty Grants

Faculty grants are available to conduct research or attend conferences abroad.  Applications are due in the fall for winter break projects with an application deadline of October 1, 2022. Applications are due in the spring for summer break projects, with an application deadline of February 1, 2023. Applicants must complete the Faculty Grant Application (DOC) and any IRB requirements. Email the application and accompanying materials to the Director of the Dean Rusk International Studies Program. (Daniel Crocker at dacrocker@davidson.edu)

With limited funds available and a goal to support as many faculty as possible the number of awards and the amount of each award will depend on the size of the applicant pool.  All tenured and tenure-track faculty are eligible to apply for Dean Rusk travel grants. If the total funds requested in any given year exceed funds available, priority is given to Assistant Professors in tenure-track positions.  Visiting faculty may also apply and will be considered if funds are available.

At the completion of the faculty member's travel, an accounting of expenses must be submitted along with receipts and a reflective essay to mezweifel@davidson.edu.
