The Baruch College Faculty Handbook

Eugene M. Lang Junior Faculty Research Program

Last updated on 1/15/2015

Dear Faculty Colleagues,

Lang Fellowships are designed to encourage and assist Baruch's junior faculty members to develop and carry out scholarly research in their disciplines in furtherance of their academic careers. The goal of the program is to produce scholarly research that represents significant accomplishment. I urge all eligible faculty members to apply (eligible faculty will receive a separate hard copy mailing) and ask that senior faculty encourage their junior colleagues to apply.


Application Deadline and Selection Schedule

** Deadline extended to 5pm, February 18th, 2014 **

    • Project proposals must be submitted on or before5pm, February 18th, 2014.
    • Fellowship decisions will be announced on or before Commencement.
    • Funding will be available for the following academic year, beginning  July 1, 2014.


Eligible projects include scholarly research, creative projects, and other types of projects that represent significant contributions to the applicant's discipline. These projects must meet the standards of professional and academic achievement recognized by the tenure and promotion guidelines set forth by CUNY. In addition to scholarly research and publication, examples of eligible projects include professional-level (a) writing and publication of creative/journalistic works, (b) creation and performance/exhibition of works of the fine arts or music, (c) writing and production of works of theater, (d) creation and implementation of public initiatives that serve the social good and are specifically relevant to the applicant's academic disciplines.

Research proposals requesting support of up to $8,000 from full-time tenure track junior faculty members of Baruch College in all disciplines will be considered. A committee of Baruch faculty members determines the fellowship winners. This exciting opportunity for junior faculty members is made possible by Mr. Lang's generous donation through the Eugene M. Lang Foundation. Eugene M. Lang agreed to renew The Eugene M. Lang Junior Faculty Research Program through 2010. Mr. Lang is delighted with the extraordinary quality of the research his funding has supported during the past years.
