Faculty GrantsSwarthmore faculty write grants to support their research, their teaching and other academic projects - activities they often engage in during their sabbatical.
Each year, more than forty faculty members are eligible for a one-year sabbatical leave. The first semester is paid for by the College. Internal resources are available to fund a second semester of leave for a limited number of faculty. Individuals are only eligible to apply for an internal second semester leave grant if they have already applied for external support.
Some faculty members, especially in the natural sciences and engineering, also receive on-going research grants that span multiple years. These grants often include support of summer stipends for Swarthmore student researchers, postdoctoral researchers, and indirect funds to support the administrative infrastructure necessary for research.
