As appropriate, stipends for the academic year will be awarded to supplement faculty sabbatical support; a significant portion of the fellow’s total support is generally provided by sabbatical funds and external funding from awards and grants secured by the fellow. Except in unusual circumstances, Center stipend support is contingent on the applicant’s provision of firm assurances of matching funds. Depending on available funds, the Center provides stipends according to the following principles:
- A Center stipend is based on the fellow’s academic salary for the year before residence.
- That stipend cannot exceed one-half of the fellow’s academic year (nine-month) base salary for that year and is additionally subject to an upper limit set by the CASBS board of directors.
- The cap is currently set at $75,000 but may increase slightly.
- The sum of the fellow’s salary from a home institution and a Center stipend may not exceed the fellow’s base academic salary for the fellowship year.
Fellows receive their stipend payments directly; the Center cannot assign a fellow’s stipend to a third party or institution.
They can only provide stipends to first-time fellows. Returning CASBS fellows are expected to fund themselves.
