This program encourages tenure-track faculty to collaborate with students.
The goals of this program are to support tenure-track faculty as they develop and enhance their scholarship in preparation for tenure consideration, and to encourage them to do so in collaboration with students. The intention is to provide a meaningful scholarly experience for students, and to result in scholarly dissemination through professional presentations and/or peer-reviewed publication, that advances the faculty member's career.
A UW-Eau Claire tenure-track faculty member may propose a project that involves at least one student researcher. The project may be new, or may already be in progress. Funds are available to provide a student scholarship of up to $2000 and to support reassigned faculty instructional time for the equivalent of one 3-credit course during the academic year. Summer or Winterim salary may be an alternative, but projects with reassigned time will receive preference.
- UW-Eau Claire faculty member on tenure track
- Student researcher identified, or qualifications for student researcher established
