Third round of Career Development awards funds 40
Forty women faculty members have received Career Development Fund awards in the third round of competition held earlier this fall.
Part of the Michigan Agenda for Women, the fund is supported by the Presidential Initiatives Fund and provides discretionary accounts of $5,000.
The program is designed to recognize and address the disproportionate share of service commitments carried by women faculty.
The funds may be used to support graduate students, travel, books, computers or other discretionary purchases relating to scholarship, research or creative activity.
Up to 40 recipients are selected annually, based on both service and scholarly records. "Service" is defined broadly as "any professionally related activities, including especially demanding teaching assignments, that draw the applicant away from her scholarly or creative agenda."
