George J. and Rhoda W. Kriz Study Leave Award

Overview

All CALS faculty are encouraged to take study leave. In an effort to encourage scholarly leave, George J. and Rhoda W. Kriz established an endowment for off-campus scholarly assignments.

Award Amount

Two awards of $2,000 are available to support study leave each year.

Eligibility

Any CALS faculty member with approved study leave at an out-of-state location.

Nomination and Selection

Submit applications to NCARS on or before the third Friday in November of each fiscal year. For instructions on how to apply, ask your Department Head or call (919) 515-2717.

The Kriz Award can be used as leverage to obtain other support for the study leave.
