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.

- National Security Presidential Memorandum-33 (NSPM-33)
Issued on January 14, 2021, the National Security Presidential Memorandum-33 (NSPM-33) requires all federal research funding agencies to strengthen and standardize disclosure requirements for federally funded awards including the establishment of research security programs at research institutions receiving federal funds. In January 2022, the National Science and Technology Council issued Guidance for Implementing National Security Presidential Memorandum 33 on National Security Strategy for United States Government-Supported Research and Development to provide clarity on this memorandum.

- Provost’s International Internship Support for Undergraduate Students
Faculty members engaging in research outside of the United States can request undergraduate research assistants to accompany them abroad for short- or medium-term projects during the winter session, spring break, or summer. The research activities of the undergraduate research assistant(s) must take place under the direct supervision and mentorship of the faculty member in the international setting. As part of this initiative, faculty must submit a proposal, which will include a budget for the student intern(s) to receive funding, which only supports undergraduate students.
- Visiting Scholars/Professionals and Volunteers Policy and Request form
Binghamton University strongly encourages an open environment that fosters a free exchange of ideas in academia and beyond; this is a prerequisite for cooperation across disciplines. As a destination for visiting scholars, scientists, engineers, researchers and employees from foreign academic institutions, industry, and governmental bodies, our campus encourages the open
exchange of ideas from people across the globe in our efforts to drive the advancement of human knowledge and understanding. Although we want to foster an environment of academic freedom and free speech, our process of hosting domestic and international visitors must also comply with
existing U.S. federal laws and regulations. To submit a request for a Visiting Scholar, Professional or Volunteer please complete a request form found at my.binghamton.edu under Provost Office E-Forms or click Here.
- Fulbright Scholar Awards
Fulbright Scholarships enable faculty to broaden the reach of their international contacts and to develop lasting transnational research and professional partnerships, which in turn result in innovative new publications, collaborative endeavors, and creative work. Scholar Award recipients consistently report an increase in the number of international citations of their work, as well as deepened cross-cultural awareness, which is transformative in the classroom and in how they conceptualize their scholarly pursuits.
