The Weir/Galm Award Program
The Sybil Weir/John Galm Award is designed to assist junior faculty in establishing and developing their careers at San José State University. The award is intended to support research, travel to present at conferences, and/or acquisition of materials related to teaching or scholarship. A longtime professor and Chair of the English Department, Dr. John Galm, established the Weir/Galm Endowment in 1995 in memory of his wife, Dr. Sybil Weir. Dr. Weir also had a long career at San José State University. She was Professor of English and Associate Dean of the College of Humanities and the Arts; she also served as Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs. The Weir/Galm Endowment Award is intended to enhance the careers of new faculty members according to the wishes of Dr. Weir and Dr. Galm.
Tenure-track faculty members are eligible for this award. All disciplines are welcome. In keeping with the wishes of the donors, preference will be given to proposals that address issues of diversity (broadly defined).
One award of up to $2500 will be provided to the recipient via a Tower Foundation account. Announcements will be made in January 2023.
Proposals are due by Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at 5:00 pm. Please fill out this form.
