Full-time tenure-track and non-tenure-track journalism faculty are eligible to apply for the Kemp Development Grant, which supports curriculum development and research about teaching. Proposals may be individual or collaborative.
This year the Journalism Awards Committee will give priority to proposals that address needs of the B.A.J.'s news reporting and editing curriculum revision.
These awards are comparable to summer faculty fellowships, but faculty cannot receive both in one year. Awards range from $8,000-$12,000, based on individual or collaborative proposals, and will be distributed half at the beginning of summer and half after faculty hear project presentations in late fall/early spring semester.
The committee expects to have $38,000-$40,000 available to award this spring.
The grants are funded by a gift from the late Gretchen A. Kemp, who taught at the journalism school from 1948-74 and was director of the High School Journalism Institute.
