Junior Faculty Manuscript Colloquium


Each Assistant Professor or Associate Professor on term in the FAS is eligible for a one-time grant to support an occasion where they will receive high-level professional feedback on their academic work.


Funding support up to $3,000 may be used to support a pre-publication book colloquium, a small conference, or attendance at an event where the emerging scholar would receive in-depth engagement with their research. Funds may also be used to support attendance at a mentoring workshop sponsored by, for example, an academic organization, learned society, or a funding agency such as the NIH or the NSF.

Events funded with this support should be timed to maximize the impact of the intellectual engagement with the scholar’s work prior to their formal review at Yale.

Application Process

Assistant Professors should confer with their mentors and chairs about the best timing and use of the funds. The department chair, with input from the Assistant Professor, will prepare a short written request and budget that describes the event, its participants, and the means by which engaged intellectual feedback will be offered to the faculty member. 

Chairs should send requests directly to sal2.fas@yale.edu with Junior Faculty Manuscript Colloquium in the subject line. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
