Office of the Vice President for Research

Summer Stipends

The President of the University and the Dean of Arts & Sciences annually allocates funds for faculty awards to support full-time summer research in the social sciences and the humanities (including original creative works in the fine arts).  In addition, we are allowed two (2) nominees for the summer stipend program sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Faculty members who receive a U.Va. summer stipend will be expected to devote at least four consecutive weeks of the summer of the award to the project outlined in their application. (Summer here is defined as June 1 until the beginning of classes in the Fall.) They may, however, receive salary for summer teaching or summer administrative duties, provided that this salaried work occupies no more than eight consecutive weeks during the summer of the award. Alternatively, summer award recipients may accept research funds up to $10,000 from other sources for summer projects, provided that this additionally funded research occupies no more than eight consecutive weeks during the summer of the award.

Faculty members may receive summer support for no more than two consecutive years and regain eligibility after a summer without support.
