The Office of the Provost has established the Author Support Fund. The purpose of this fund is to help defray publication charges to faculty members who have written book manuscripts which, if published, would likely bring distinction to the author(s) and to the University. Funds are awarded on a competitive basis. Only manuscripts accepted for publication and accompanied by formal reviews initiated and implemented by the publishing house will be considered. Persons eligible to apply for funds are faculty or academic professionals whose position responsibilities include the expectation of research and publication, and who hold appointments in units reporting directly or indirectly to the Provost. Additional information regarding the Author Support Fund is available from the Office of the Provost or online as follows:
