Lurcy Grant Application
Description: Lurcy Grants support research by tenure-line faculty of the School of Liberal Arts. They can be used to help support individual faculty travel to research collections or to help pay for the costs of purchasing essential materials for faculty research. Lurcy Grants are only given out once a year. A proposal should describe how a faculty member will use the requested funds and explain the grant’s contribution to the faculty member’s larger scholarly goals.
The grants should be used by one year after the grant has been awarded; the applicable period is from the month of June following the award notification through May in the year following. If an extension is needed, a request should be sent to the Executive Committee explaining the reasons for the continuation of the funds. A progress report on the grant is due by the end of the fall semester following the completion of the grant. (Send such requests and reports to SLA-Dean@tulane.edu and copy to Tara Hamburg, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please note: In ordinary circumstances, a Lurcy Grant will not be awarded to faculty receiving our Faculty Research Award in the same academic year.
All applications will be evaluated by the Dean and the Executive Committee.
