Faculty Development Award Program

The Long Island Consortium for Interconnected Learning is a multi-faceted initiative, funded by the National Science Foundation to enhance instruction and learning in mathematics and mathematically based disciplines. The Consortium's Faculty Development Award Program provides summer stipends to faculty at member institutions for efforts to further the project's goals.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: With mathematics or quantitative applications as the central focus, the Consortium will be soliciting proposals during the Spring of 2000. Visit this page for updates.

AMOUNT OF AWARDS: Past awards have been $500 to $1000 for individual faculty and up to $2500 for a group of faculty. Amounts may be augmented by funds from home institutions. Awards are intended for summer stipends, but can also be used to purchase needed equipment (equipment funds must be matched by home institutions). The size of future awards will posted here at a later time.

PROPOSALS (up to two single-spaced pages): The proposal should identify the instructional challenges under consideration, how they are being addressed, innovative aspects of the work, as well as local and global benefits.

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: To be announced, sometime in the Spring of 2000. (Proposals should be submitted to the local Consortium Project Director at your institution (listed in the Consortium Newsletters or on the Consortium web site at www.licil.org)

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION: Contact the local Consortium Project Directors or the Consortium Office at SUNY-Stony Brook (516) 632-7321; licil@ams.sunysb.edu
