The Edward and Linda Speed Catholic Studies Faculty Development and Research Fund
The Edward and Linda Speed Catholic Studies Faculty Development and Research Fund provides grants to support faculty research, teaching and program development that integrates elements of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT) and Catholic Social Teaching (CST). The focus of the Fund is to provide faculty with an opportunity to think through how their professional development does or could engage with the Center for Catholic Studies and serve our community more tangibly and intentionally by embracing our Catholic heritage, mission and its teachings.
Grant funds may be used to support individual or teams of St. Mary’s University faculty for:
- research expenses (e.g., travel needed for research or collaborative work, materials or supplies);
- research assistance (e.g., student assistant or a professional hired for a particular task);
- teaching release time to undertake or complete scholarship; and
- faculty workshops and/or seminars that engage St. Mary’s faculty.
