President's Sabbatical Award

The President's Sabbatical Award is designed to foster creative energy by providing faculty with a one-semester sabbatical leave with full pay. Each academic year, a maximum of three faculty members, one of whom can be on a 12-month contract, can receive the award.

Award proposals should be no more than 1,000 words and specify how the sabbatical leave will uniquely benefit both the individual and the College. The proposal and NVCC Form 105-100 should be sent electronically to the chair of the Personnel Services Committee, by December 1. Faculty members on the Personnel Services Committee (who are not eligible for the award) will evaluate the proposals and recommend up to three names to the President, who selects the award winners. Award recipients will present a lecture on their sabbatical experience to the College community during the year following their leave.

NVCC Form 105-100 is available in the Forms Library. Applicants must be eligible for sabbatical leave and have completed six years of service in the VCCS to qualify for the President's Sabbatical Award. Applicants who have previously won he President's Sabbatical Award must have served the College six years since their last award.

President's Sabbatical Rubric - The Personnel Services Committee will use this rubric to evaluate all applications. Please review the criteria when writing your sabbatical application.

A list of recent award winners and examples of successful Presidential Sabbatical Award proposals are below:
