Hemingway Grants and Awards

(revised July 2004)

In December 1988, a gift of $1 million from the Hemingway family established the Hemingway Faculty Development Trust at Weber State University.  As a result, WSU faculty have the opportunity to receive funding for projects that increase faculty vitality and improve student education.  Funding is available for the following types of projects.

HEMINGWAY GRANTS - approximately $30,000 per year is available for the following two categories of grants.  The final funding decisions on these proposals are made by the Research Scholarship & Professional Growth (RSPG) Committee of the Faculty Senate. 
Application Deadline and Forms

Hemingway New Faculty Grants are provided to faculty within their first two years on the tenure track at WSU.  An estimated $15,000 per tenure track year is available for New Faculty Grants.

Hemingway Faculty Vitality Grants are provided to faculty for projects to support:

  • individual research
  • presentation of papers or serving in an official capacity at a professional organization meeting
  • attendance at a meeting or short workshop
  • development of a new course
  • acquisition of new skills or expertise

Priority will be given to proposals that have significant contributing funds from other sources, such as the faculty member’s department or college, external agencies, or personal sources.  An estimated $15,000 per year is available for Faculty Vitality Grants.

HEMINGWAY AWARDS - approximately $40,000 per year is available for the following two categories of awards.  The final funding decisions on these proposals are made by Hemingway Trustees, following review and recommendation by the RSPG Committee of the Faculty Senate.
Application Deadline and Forms

Hemingway Collaborative Project Awards that involve two or more WSU faculty (priority will be given to proposals that focus on two or more separate disciplines). 

Hemingway Faculty Excellence Awards for faculty projects that have the potential to positively and significantly impact a broader community, either on or off-campus.  Examples might include:

  • substantial faculty or undergraduate research project
  • first year student success project
  • scholar-in residence that exceeds one-week in length

    These proposals must clearly specify how the benefit goes beyond individual faculty and impacts a broader community.  The community may be defined as the faculty member’s department or college, or an off-campus partner.

The Hemingway Award (Collaboration and Faculty Excellence) recipients will receive recognition from the Hemingway Trustees at a spring luncheon.
