Sabbatical Fellowships provide stipend support to individuals engaged in a multidisciplinary research training program that will create or extend their professional credentials.
The purpose of this program is to enable faculty with active research programs to work outside of their institutions for a period of six months to one year to learn new skills or develop collaborations that will enhance their research and research training capabilities. It is anticipated that this research will occur in academic or industrial laboratory settings as part of a multidisciplinary team.
The applicant and mentor of the program must describe how the multidisciplinary goals of the training will be accomplished, and provide assurance that key collaborating mentors endorse and are willing to support the plan. Matching funds must be provided by the institution.
