Way Klingler Research Awards
Information about the 2020-21 application guidelines for the three types of grants that are awarded to Marquette faculty as part of the Way Klingler Faculty Development Program is located below. The development program features a series of awards intended to advance research and scholarship and was made possible through an $18 million donation from Helen Way Klingler announced in May 2004.
Way Klingler Fellowship
Given to full-time regular faculty at the associate or full professor rank with significant scholarship and higher potential. Faculty will be nominated by academic deans or self-nominated with dean endorsement. Based upon a recommendation from the selection committee, Way Klingler Fellowships will be awarded in two categories, labeled “science” or “humanities/social sciences.” Science applicants are those with a track record of strong research funding whose research requires higher-expense items, such as, equipment, supplies and research staff. Typically, those from the natural sciences, engineering and biomedical science would address this category. Humanities/social science applicants are those with a national recognition for scholarship whose critical research requirements may be time, access to information and travel. Typically, those from the humanities, communication, business administration, education and many areas designated as social sciences would address this category. In some social science areas and disciplines such as nursing, it may be possible to address either category depending on the specific research focus. The selection of category is thus not one set by discipline but, rather, determined by the applicant. Two Way Klingler Fellowships will be awarded in 2020, one in each applicant-designated area of science or humanities/social sciences. The science fellow will receive $50,000 annually for three years, and the humanities fellow will receive $20,000 annually for three years. The fellows will be chosen by the Committee on Research. Application deadline for submission by the deans is January 10, 2020. (Check with your dean’s office to confirm the college application deadline.)
To provide the opportunity for as many faculty as possible to benefit from the Way Klingler Fellowship, the Committee on Research voted to restrict past recipients from being considered again until 10 years after their original award date.
Way Klingler Young Scholar Awards
Supports promising young scholars in critical stages of their careers. Up to four awards will be given for 2020-21 to full-time regular junior faculty in the three years following their third-year review. The awards are intended to fund $2,000 in operating cost and to cover a portion of salary to afford the recipient a one-semester release from teaching. Individuals will be selected by the Committee on Research. Application deadline for submission is January 6, 2020. (Check with your dean’s office to confirm the college application deadline.)
