|The Sabbatical Leave Program provides fellowship appointments for a minimum of one semester to a maximum of one year in length. The purpose of sabbatical leave is to provide an opportunity for faculty members to engage in scholarly, creative, professional, research, or other academic activities that will enhance the faculty member's further contributions to their institution.
Participants in the Sabbatical Leave Program receive a monthly stipend making up the difference between salary and sabbatical leave pay from their home institution. Relocation and travel assistance are provided to qualifying participants.
This program is residential and all work must be completed on site at the sponsoring U.S. Navy Laboratory.
Applications for the Sabbatical Leave Program should be submitted six months prior to the start of the proposed sabbatical.
