Our Associate Dean is interested in finding out a little more about the range of summer research grants at other institutions around the country. The faculty has been asking around and has accumulated information on, roughly, 15 schools. I thought maybe the blogosphere could help. If you're willing to share your institution's policies, please shoot me an email. I promise to keep you anonymous and, in return, I'll also send you a spreadsheet with all the data we collect. Specifically, we'd like to know:
(1) If grants are in any way conditional (i.e., do you receive the money only after getting an article accepted for publication?)
(2) If the amounts are the same across the board, or if they vary depending on faculty seniority or some other criteria
(3) if the availability of funding for summer projects varies from year to year, or if it's consistently available
(4) anything else that's useful.
