Application/nomination deadline: February 10, 2014
Thanks to the generosity of Doris and Carl Kempner and Juanita and Joseph Leff, Purchase College is pleased to announce the 2014 Senior Faculty Research Award. Each recipient will receive a total of $5,000 over one year (Leff: 2014–15) or two years (Kempner: 2014–16) to subsidize research, performances, exhibitions, conferences, travel, and/or recital expenses. The awards will be primarily for having achieved distinction or having the immediate potential for such distinction in one or more fields within the college’s mission, including artistic performance, scholarly distinction, and pedagogical innovation. Proposals for the development of experiential courses, interdisciplinary courses that cross school or conservatory boundaries, or new international experiences or courses are especially welcome. Emphasis will be on the national or international achievement of the recipient and on his or her contribution to the college. Distinction within a specific field will be a major criterion, but special attention will be given to applicants whose work shows connections with fields outside their own specialty, in accord with the college’s mission in the performing, liberal, and visual arts.
Applications or nominations should be directed to the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs no later than February 10, 2014. Each application or nomination should contain:
Please assemble all materials and submit them together; incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
