COVID-19 Updates: Fall Semester

Grant Seeking Guidelines

Middlebury’s generous leave program was approved by the Board of Trustees in 1994 with the provision that faculty would make every effort to obtain funding for salary and travel expenses from external sources. The leave program requires faculty to “exhaust” all sources appropriate to their project. The somewhat arbitrary guideline used to determine whether the faculty member has made every effort to do so is a minimum of three sources, which may include support for salary, research expenses, and travel.
