Hanway Global Studies Faculty Development Grants

The Global Studies Program at Loyola University Maryland is pleased to announce the availability of Hanway Global Studies Faculty Development Grants, to support faculty development contributing to the advancement of Global Studies at Loyola.

The Hanway Global Studies Faculty Development Grants, made possible by the generous support of Ellen and Ed Hanway, will support faculty development projects by full-time faculty members (tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure-track) of Loyola University Maryland. Proposals should foster more effective teaching, enhance scholarly research or creative work, and disseminate ideas and promote debate in public events. All full-time Loyola faculty members are eligible, irrespective of their department of provenance, provided that the project submitted for financial support is relevant to the Global Studies Program and its mission and objectives. Each grant will not exceed $3,000 and the specific amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the selection committee. Grants for the development of new courses will be in the amount of $2,000. Grants are also available to organize talks, conference panels or workshops offered here at Loyola up to $3000. These grants will be in the form of reimbursement of actual costs based on receipts.


All Loyola full-time faculty members eligible, with a preference for faculty with a record of previous teaching and/or scholarly excellence. Members of the Global Studies Selection Committee are not eligible.


Candidates should submit a CV, cover sheet, an itemized budget and a proposal of no more than 1,000 words as email attachments to Janine Holc, Director of Global Studies. Proposals should include a description of the project, its goals and importance, and a timetable. Applicants wishing to develop a new course to be offered in the Global Studies curriculum should first consult with the Director of Global Studies. They should also attach a letter from their departmental Chair with a stated commitment to have the course offered at least three times in the six years following the award of the grant. Applications are being accepted on an ongoing basis, and will be reviewed by the committee on a monthly basis between September 1st and April 27th of each academic year. The selection committee, chaired by the Director of Global Studies, will ordinarily communicate a final decision within one month from the date of submission. Incomplete applications will not be considered. It is possible to apply in consecutive years.

Responsibilities of the Grantee

The Hanway Global Studies Faculty Development grantees will have to submit a final report to the Director of the Global Studies Program at the end of the activity financed by the grant. The grantees will also be expected to acknowledge the grant when appropriate. As part of the acceptance of this grant for scholarly research, the grantee agrees to offer at least one talk or workshop related to their work to the Global Studies students or the larger Loyola community. The timing of the event will be coordinated with the Global Studies Director.
