College & Career Readiness,
For sabbatical research leaves from classroom teaching and administrative obligations can provide strong intellectual stimulation and increase creativity and productivity in theoretical research. The foundation’s fellows program seeks to make sabbatical research leaves more productive by extending them from a single term to a full academic year.
Applicants must have a teaching or tenured administrative position within the mathematics department at a United States or Canadian college or university. Applicants must be approved for a full year of sabbatical research leave from their home institution, consisting of two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters, with at least 50 percent of the year fully paid by the home university and no more than 50 percent fully or partly supported by the fellowship.
