Research and Engagement Academy Class of 2019 Faculty Scholars and Leadership Team

Welcome to the Research and Engagement Academy. The Academy is designed to advance and support the scholarly careers and success of faculty members by strengthening the quality and quantity of grant proposals submitted to federal agencies and foundations and by increasing the diversity of faculty who are awarded funding.

Academy scholars commit to submit a competitive grant proposal, to attend seven half-day workshops and to work closely with an assigned “scholarly coach.” Scholarly coaches are senior UNH faculty with established track records of external funding. This faculty professional development Academy is one of several programs offered by the Office of the Senior Vice Provost Engagement and Faculty Development to help support scholarship and engagement.

The application deadline is March 29, 2019

The mission for the University of New Hampshire’s Research and Engagement Academy is to enhance faculty members’ scholarly careers.

We seek to broaden the number and diversity of faculty who submit proposals to external funders and who are awarded grants to enhance their scholarship and engagement agendas.

To support our vision, the Academy goals are to:

  • Enhance scholars' relationships with and understanding of federal agencies and foundations;
  • Encourage scholars to develop a team approach to enhance grant writing success;
  • Provide information and access to on-campus proposal writing and submission resources;
  • Provide information and access to colleagues with successful grant records to learn about successful strategies with federal agencies and foundations;
  • Catalyze interactions among scholars and scholarly coaches to create robust and productive scholarly agendas;
  • Create opportunities among faculty for multidisciplinary scholarship and engagement.

A scholarly coach is a senior faculty member with a track record of external funding success and the personal qualities necessary to support and coach a faculty colleague. A scholarly coach has the opportunity to join this learning community of scholars, designed to advance faculty scholarship and engagement through external funding opportunities.
