The Global Studies Program at Loyola University Maryland is pleased to announce the establishment of a new position, the Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies, to support outstanding scholarly research contributing to the advancement of Global Studies at Loyola.

The position of the Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies, made possible by the generous support of Ellen and Ed Hanway, will be awarded every three years (shorter periods will be considered upon request) to one full-time faculty member of Loyola University Maryland. The recipient will hold the title of Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies for the duration of the grant period.

Through the Establishment of the Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies, the Global Studies Program seeks to fund major research projects that promise to advance our understanding of questions that are global in nature, and crucial for the development of individuals, cultures, and societies. We particularly welcome applications that promise to offer outstanding research contributions to both a specific disciplinary field and to interdisciplinary dialogue. We also encourage applicants to explain how their research would contribute to the Global Studies program and the intellectual life of Loyola University Maryland.

Eligibility

All Loyola full-time tenured faculty members are eligible, with a preference for faculty with a proven record of scholarly excellence. Application from non-tenured full-time faculty members may be considered in exceptional cases. 

Application

Applicants should submit a CV, cover sheet, and a research proposal of no more than 2,000 words as email attachments to Michele Alacevich, Director of Global Studies. Proposals should include a description of the objectives of the research and its importance, a project plan and timetable, and a proposed budget (the Loyola University Senior Sabbatical guidelines may be used as a reference). The deadline is April 27, 2015. Incomplete applications will not be considered. 

Award

The Hanway Faculty Scholar grantee will be selected by a committee chaired by the Director of Global Studies and composed of the Associate Dean for the Social Sciences and the Global Studies Steering Committee. The award will be announced in the spring preceding the beginning of the appointment. 

Disbursement

The grant will consist of $24,000 over a period of three years (or the pro-rated amount for shorter periods), and will be disbursed in three installments of $8,000 each at the beginning of each academic year, pending the submission of a satisfactory progress report at the end of the first and second year. The disbursement schedule and the relative amount of the three installments may be modified based on the specific needs of the grantee, provided that there is no conflict with the needs of the Global Studies Program and the Hanway Faculty Scholar grant program. The grant may be used to finance a course release, pending the approval of the department chair.

Responsibilities of the Grantee

 The Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies will pursue research on the proposed topic and, in consultation with the Global Studies Steering Committee, will organize one seminar or workshop for students and/or faculty per year, even if on sabbatical, and will delivery a Global Studies University Lecture in the third year, to be held preferably in the spring. Also, the grantee will submit two annual progress reports and a final report to the Director of Global Studies. The Hanway Faculty Scholar in Global Studies agrees to acknowledge this grant in all publications and presentations resulting from the research funded by the grant.
