October 7, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
A ‘Fund for Scholarly Research and Creative Work and Professional Development (Adjuncts)’, has been established. This fund will provide support either in the form of salary stipends or a grant (provided through a research/professional development account) for scholarly and creative work or professional development undertaken by eligible Adjunct Members.
The Fund shall be administered by a sub-committee of the JCAA. The sub-committee shall determine the frequency of competitions (which shall be a maximum of three per academic year – normally around the end of May, September, and January) and the form and deadlines for application to the Fund.
It is the intention of the Parties that the Fund be used to support as many deserving applications as possible. In making awards from the Fund, the sub-committee shall give consideration to the relative merits of proposed applications and projects and to other sources of funding available to the applicant.
Adjunct Members may make more than one application in any year but no more than $2,500 per year shall be awarded to an Adjunct Member who is teaching one (1.0) or less full course equivalents per year and no more than $5,000 shall be awarded to an Adjunct Member who is teaching more than one (1.0) course equivalents per year.
Adjunct Members who have previously received awards from the Fund shall submit a report to the sub-committee of the JCAA on the progress or completion of the scholarly or creative work, or professional development as set out in their applications to the Fund.
Post-Doctoral Fellows are not eligible to apply to the Fund for Scholarly Research and Creative Work and Professional Development while holding an appointment as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Queen’s University.
