Faculty Research Fellowships


Opportunities for Faculty -- Valente Center for the Arts & Sciences

Faculty Research Fellowships  

Every year, the Valente Center invites applications from faculty members for research fellowships.  These fellowships provide one or two course-releases for faculty members to complete a research project.  The primary goal of the fellowship program is to support faculty members engaged in innovative, rigorous, and diverse arts & sciences research.  Other goals include encouraging cross-disciplinary conversation and collaboration among Bentley faculty members and promoting the work of Bentley’s arts & sciences faculty beyond the campus.  Faculty Research Fellowships are available to fulltime faculty at all levels; tenure- track faculty members are especially encouraged to apply.

Deadline:  Late January
