The College expresses its appreciation to Mr. Eugene M. Lang for his many years of generous support for promising young scholars on the faculty.
** Deadline: March 5, 2020 **
Please Note: ALL APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED ELECTRONICALLY IN A SINGLE PDF FILE.
All currently untenured full-time, tenure-track faculty members below the rank of Associate Professor with two or more consecutive years of full-time teaching service as of June 1, 2020 at Baruch are eligible for a Lang Fellowship. Eligible Baruch faculty members may submit one project for consideration for a Lang Fellowship per year. Previous recipients of Lang Fellowships are eligible for another fellowship if at least one academic year has passed since the receipt of the previous fellowship and the work on the previous fellowship project has been published or formally accepted for publication, or its equivalent as described below.
Eligible projects include scholarly research and other types of projects that represent significant contributions to the applicant's discipline. These projects must meet the standards of professional and academic achievement recognized by the tenure and promotion guidelines set forth by CUNY. In addition to scholarly research and publication, examples of eligible projects include professional-level (a) writing and publication of creative/journalistic works, (b) creation and performance/exhibition of works of the fine arts or music, (c) writing and production of works of theater, (d) creation and implementation of public initiatives that serve the social good and are specifically relevant to the applicant's academic disciplines.
Funding will be considered for project start-up costs, research or other project assistance, essential equipment, production expenses, travel, manuscript preparation costs, and submission or other relevant fees.
DESCRIPTION OF AWARDS
Lang Fellowships award amounts will be between $3,500 and $8,000. It is estimated that between four to six Lang Fellowships will be awarded for the 2019-2020 academic year.
