The Hoppe Research Professor Awards are made to SIUE faculty members in order to recognize and support individual programs of research or creative activities. These Awards recognize faculty members whose research or creative activities have the promise of making significant contributions to their fields of study. Recipients are expected to produce published scholarly works and externally sponsored grants.
All full-time continuing members of the faculty may apply to the Hoppe program. Research staff members on continuing appointments who have served as an investigator or co-investigator on an externally sponsored grant are also eligible for the Hoppe program. The terminal degree must be completed by the time of submittal. All applicants must have submitted completed final reports and fulfilled the terms and conditions, including submission of an external grant proposal, of projects previously funded by the SIUE Graduate School at least 5 business days before this program deadline in order to be eligible for this program.
The Hoppe Research Professorship Awards are designed to support a significant and discrete portion of a faculty member's larger research agenda. The Hoppe Research Professor will be appointed for a two-year period, during which he or she will receive 50% assigned time for research each academic year (cost is shared with school/ college), the services of a one-quarter time graduate assistant (for nine months per year), and $1,000 in support lines. Recipients must wait one year after completion of the appointment before applying again for the Hoppe Research Professorship.
Applicants must have the endorsement of their Department Chair and Dean.
Letters of Evaluation
There are no formal guidelines for creating the Letters of Evaluation from the Dean or Department Chair. The evaluations should address the criteria enumerated below under "Selection Criteria," and provide an honest, overall assessment of the applicant’s scholarly potential and ongoing contribution to the school/department. Applicants will NOT receive a copy of the Letters of Evaluation unless provided upon request by the Chairs and Deans.
Applications must address the individual's overall agenda for research or creative activity and the proposed work and objectives for the two-year award period.
The application package should include the sections below.
The Narrative should be written in a manner that is understandable to a non-specialist and should contain 1” margins and font at Times New Roman 11 or Ariel 10 or higher. Pages must be numbered Stronger proposals will address an audience of educated laypeople from various University units.
The Graduate School's RPAB Committee will make its recommendation for the Hoppe Research Professorship recipient to the Graduate Dean. The focus of the selection process will be on identifying the applicant for whom a Hoppe Research Professorship could make the most significant contribution in furthering research or creative activities in the applicant's discipline. The RPAB Committee's evaluation will include, but is not limited to, consideration of the following factors:
Research is broadly defined as all creative, critical, scholarly, and/or empirical activity that expands, clarifies, reorganizes, or develops knowledge or artistic perception. This definition of research includes the demonstration, implementation, application, and dissemination of research results and those grants designated as research by the granting agency. This definition of research does not include departmental curriculum development, faculty development (learning an established technique, a language, or a methodology; dissertation research), institutional research (studies related directly to the operation of the University), and public service and consulting activities.
Under no circumstances will the Graduate School consider requests to use GA funds or other budget items for any other purpose than to support the proposed project.
Recipients must submit a mid-term progress report at the end of the first of the appointment by June 30th of the second year. The second year's appointment is contingent upon satisfactory progress.
A Final Report is required within ninety (90) days (October 1st of the third year) after the completion of the appointment. Recipients of the award are expected to produce published scholarly works and externally sponsored proposals.
The applicant must submit at least one external grant proposal by the time of the final report.
Recipients will not be eligible for additional support from the Graduate School until these conditions are satisfied.
