JSA/JLab Sabbatical/Research Leave Support Program

First established by the SURA Board of Trustees in 1997, this Program provides support for faculty from universities conducting research at the Jefferson Lab during approved sabbatical leave from their home institutions. The Program provides $1,500 per month living expense support for up to nine months for researchers to relocate to the Lab during their sabbaticals.

An evalulation committee reviews proposals to assess the potential contributions to the nuclear and related particle physics, accelerator physics and associated fields and the free electron laser research efforts of the Lab. The committee also considers the proposed utilization of the Lab's facilities and the integration with the Lab staff and users to advance the proposed research.

The JSA/JLab Sabbatical/Research Leave Support Program is managed and administered by the SURA Chief Governance Office on behalf of the Jefferson Lab Committee.
