Collaborative research activities (e.g., project planning, site visits, training) must begin by the residency start date and no later than September 1, 2020, whichever is earlier.
Residencies can begin no earlier than May 15, 2020, and must begin by June 1, 2021, at the latest.
Important Program Changes in FY 2020
ARS will fund two types of sabbaticals:
A 6- to 12-month residency funded at up to $125,000; and
A summer residency that funds participants at a maximum of $75,000 over 2 consecutive 3-month summer residencies.
The 1890 FRSP will be open to tenure-track and research-track faculty who have been employed for a minimum of 3 years at their current institutions at the time of proposal submission.
There is no limit to the number of applications that can be submitted by each 1890 LGU. Although ARS will attempt to maximize the number of institutions receiving awards, multiple awards may be made to the same university based on the quality of the proposals.
