Faculty Grants & Fellowships
Below are the two faculty grants and fellowships available for curriculum development and other educational endeavors for the 2012-2013 academic year.
All Cooper Union faculty are eligible to apply for fellowships, grants, and awards. Proposals should describe the educational rationale of the project, include objectives, expected outcomes, and include a timetable and budget. Course development awards are intended to provide project expenses other than Cooper Union faculty compensation. Examples of project expenses include travel, materials, part-time help, event registrations and consultants. Follow-up reports are required within 6 months of conclusion of projects.
The funds to support these awards are provided from investment return on restricted endowment accounts. All proposals should be submitted in writing to the attention of President Jamshed Barucha by November 16, 2012. The deans of the four faculties will advise President Barucha of their recommendations on the proposals and awards will be announced shortly thereafter.
