Presidential Sabbatical Award Applications 

The President's Sabbatical Award will allow a maximum of three faculty members, one of whom can be on a 12-month contract, to receive a semester of leave with full pay.  Proposals will be awarded based on their excellence and a candidate's potential to contribute to the long-term mission of the College.  Those wishing to apply for the award for the 2008-2009 academic year will need to submit their proposal no later than December 1 at 5:00 p.m.

Proposals should be no longer than 1,000 words and specify how the sabbatical leave will uniquely benefit both the individual and the College.  The proposal and a 50-word executive summary should be sent as an email attachment to Human Resources along with NVCC Form 105-100.  Within a week, Human Resources will confirm that it has received the proposal.  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.  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 from Human Resources (703.323.3335).  Applicants must be eligible for sabbatical leave to qualify for the President's Sabbatical Award.
