Saved by the bell … er, McCains.
Beginning in 2011, Harrison McCain Young Scholars Awards of $100,000 will be provided annually to support five to seven faculty members who show individual promise in one or more areas of development, teaching, research or community service.
To recognize the increasing number of global opportunities, the foundation will also provide $70,000 annually in support of Harrison McCain Visiting Professorships to support both emerging and well-established scholars who wish to visit Acadia.
In the third element of the program, the foundation will provide $30,000 annually to establish two Harrison McCain Visitorships to support Acadia faculty who identify short-term professional development and collaborative opportunities at other institutions. [CH -Dec. 18]
Thank goodness for capitalists, eh?
