Thanks to the generosity of the Vilas Trustees, the Vilas Life Cycle Professorship program will provide research support during 2007-08. The Vilas Life Cycle Professorships provide funds to faculty and permanent PIs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who are at critical junctures in their professional careers and whose research productivity has been directly affected by personal life events (e.g., illness of a dependent, parent, spouse/partner, or one’s self; complications from childbirth; combinations of major life events).Eligibility and Application Information: These funds are available to tenure-track and tenured faculty, and academic staff with permanent PI status at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. All faculty and permanent PIs are eligible, regardless of discipline or gender. An application consists of an application form (which includes the budget), statement of need, and a CV or biosketch. A letter of support from the applicant’s department chair is encouraged but not required. Application forms and more detailed instructions for the statement of need are available online at: http://wiseli.engr.wisc.edu/initiatives/lifecycle/LifeCycleGrants.htm.
