Practice on Faculty Fellowship Buy-outs
This document is meant to memorialize and make transparent our practice in dealing with faculty who win competitive fellowships designed to buy out time for research.
As part of its commitment to support faculty research, scholarship, and creative activities, the University encourages faculty to apply for competitive external fellowships from organizations including but not limited to the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the Guggenheim Foundation.
Typically, these organizations provide a generous stipend that covers a portion of the faculty member’s salary during an approved sabbatical. Our practice, outlined below, is designed to ensure that faculty are able to accept these prestigious awards without penalty during the period of the sabbatical.
Fellowship applications and awards
When applying for a fellowship, the guidelines of the sponsor must be followed, and they differ from sponsor to sponsor. For fellowship programs that require applications be submitted by the institution, rather than an individual, faculty should contact the Sponsored Programs Office for guidance on submission of the application by the Research Foundation for SUNY (RF). If faculty have applied as an individual, they may, upon being notified of an impending award, request the sponsor issue the award to The Research Foundation.
Fellowship award administration
The University will maintain fellowship recipients on full-time status at the University at full pay in consideration of their full-time effort in research. If the award has been made to the RF, the RF in turn, will transfer the funded amount of the fellowship salary reimbursement to the school/college identified IFR, upon approval by the appropriate Dean. The school will receive the full salary amount of the fellowship as overhead will be waived on the amount of the salary reimbursement. Faculty remain in full-time status, continue to receive benefits, and their fellowship year will count toward time-served when considering eligibility for sabbatical.
