Have you been teaching full-time at NOVA for five years or more? Do you have an idea you have wanted to work on without any other distraction? Do you want a semester with full pay and benefits and no classes? If so, apply for the President’s Sabbatical Award. The deadline is December 1.
To apply, complete Form 105-100, with your dean’s and provost’s signatures, and submit a 1,000-word statement describing how you would use your sabbatical for your professional development or to serve the College and/or NOVA students.
The members of the Personnel Services Committee will review all proposals and offer recommendations to President Scott Ralls. Ralls will choose the winners in the spring. President’s Sabbatical awardees present their work and findings to the faculty at the College Convocation.
Please send your application to Stephanie Sareeram, chair of the Personnel Services Committee chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 1.
For questions, speak with your campus Personnel Services Committee representatives. To find your representative along with forms, evaluation rubric, past winners’ proposals and more, go online.
