Summer Grants

The Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs is pleased to support a competitive summer grants program for Stetson's tenured and tenure-track faculty.

Projects supported by a summer grant must contribute to the University's mission of teaching, research, and artistic development. Summer grant funds are not normally awarded for course development unless the project has an application beyond the classroom, as, for example, an article on pedagogy. Summer grants are intended to support activities carried out in the summer months (May - August) immediately following the award.
