Funding Opportunities for faculty
J.B. Smallman Research Fund
In 1987 the J. B. Smallman Research Fund was dispersed among the Faculties of Arts [and Humanities], Social Science and Music. In the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, the Dean adjudicates the applications to the Fund.
- The applicant shall be a full-time member of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities or, at the time of application, hold a Limited-Term appointment with a significant research component as defined in the Collective Agreement.
- The manuscript shall have been accepted for publication by a reputable academic press. (The fund is unable to provide support for regular publication in scholarly journals (i.e., page charges).)
- The manuscript shall have been reviewed by at least one recognized scholar in the field and judged worthy of publication.
- The applicant shall have diligently sought other sources of funding for the project, including funding from his or her Chairperson, and from the relevant granting agencies.
- The award shall normally be granted to support directly the publication through subvention to the publisher. Costs relating to typing, indexing, translation, and copying shall not normally be supported.
- The applicant shall agree that, in recognition of the grant-in-aid, he/she will acknowledge by way of notation in the preface or other suitable place in the publication, the support received from The University of Western Ontario, J.B. Smallman Fund.
- The balance in the Smallman Fund shall be sufficient to grant the award without jeopardizing the capital endowment.
- Apply by sending a letter to the Dean, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, stating the requirement of the funds. There is no deadline.
