The NSF IUSE:EHR Program invites proposals which address current challenges and opportunities facing undergraduate STEM education. In addition, proposals that anticipate new structure and functions of undergraduate learning and teaching are also encouraged to be submitted for consideration. The goal of the IUSE:EHR Program is to facilitate the provision of highly effective, evidence-based teaching and learning experiences for undergraduate students in STEM courses.
The American Council of Learned Societies has opened its applications system for the 2017 cycle. ACLS offers several fellowship opportunities for faculty in the humanities. The programs that are of greatest interest to Spelman faculty are the Burkhardt Residential Fellowships for Recently Tenured Scholars and the ACLS Fellowships. Note that the Burkhardt requires some institutional commitment which must be cleared by the provost’s office. Also, this year ACLS is introducing the ACLS Project Development Grants specifically for faculty at teaching-intensive institutions. Faculty who submit promising proposals to the ACLS Fellowships but are not chosen for a fellowship may be awarded a grant of $5,000 to support their projects. The ACLS FAQs page will provide more information.
The deadline for the Burkhardt Residential and ACLS Fellowships is September 27, 2017 by 9:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time.
The Faculty Resource Network (FRN) is accepting applications from faculty to spend a semester at New York University (NYU) in spring 2018. Faculty who are on leave or on sabbatical can spend the semester at NYU to conduct research, design curricula, and/or develop a manuscript for publication. The Scholar-in-Residence (SIR) program provides participating faculty the opportunity to increase their pedagogical expertise, expand their knowledge in their discipline, gain access to resources unavailable at their home institutions, and build their professional network.

The deadline to apply is Friday, September 15, 2017.
