The Dean’s Office is pleased to announce the call-for-applications for the 2021-2022 Hubert V. Everly Endowed Scholar in Education award!

The College of Education seeks to award two tenure track COE faculty members as the Hubert V. Everly Endowed Scholars in Education for the 2021–2022 academic year. The focus of this scholar award is to promote individual careers and provide opportunity and resources for scholarly activities that address the problems and issues of importance to the public/private P-20 educational system. The appointment as an Everly Scholar will be for one year; for the 2021–2022 academic year, two scholars will be selected. (For more information on Hubert V. Everly, please view this document “About Hubert V. Everly).

The award provides an allowance of:

  • Assistant Professor or Assistant Specialist: $6,250 each semester, for a total of $12,500 to support proposed activities for 2021-2022.
  • Associate Professor or Associate Specialist: $6,750 each semester for a total of $13,500 to support proposed activities for 2021-2022.

Some examples of how the allowance might be used include: faculty professional development opportunities; a student/research assistant; research activities; a course buy-out; or a summer project.  These are examples only and there are many possibilities depending upon the nature of the proposed scholarship (see some of the past Everly scholars here). The allowance may not be used for equipment.
