The SOAR Fund was established by the Libraries in 2014 to support open access publication of articles and book chapters in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities by faculty, staff, and students when funds are not otherwise available. This fiscal year, Nandita Mani, dean of Libraries, doubled the Libraries' previous allocation to $20,000.

The review committee will consider applications on Jan. 30 (round one) and April 15 (round two). The maximum amount of reimbursement for a manuscript accepted in the previous 12 months is $1,200. Complete eligibility, award determination criteria, and applications are available from the SOAR Fund guide
