Prestigious Awards

Support for faculty awarded external grants.


Dartmouth may provide salary support through the Prestigious Awards Program for faculty awarded fellowships of $40,000 or more from prestigious granting institutions (Guggenheim, NEH, Fulbright, etc.) that stipulate a one year teaching release.


All tenure and tenure-track faculty members of the Arts and Sciences.

Acceptance of support carries a commitment to return to the faculty for no less than one year. The faculty member will owe Dartmouth one course to be taught as an overload.


If approved, Dartmouth will make up the difference between the award amount and the faculty member's base salary while continuing to provide all benefits.

Expenses and Reimbursement

The Business Expense Policy details these and other expenditures and reimbursements. If there is a question concerning the eligibility of an expense, the expense should be reviewed with an analyst in the A&S Finance Center.
