Johnston-Hastings Endowment for Publication Support

Emeritus Professor Norman J. Johnston and his wife, L. Jane Hastings, established an endowed publications support fund to provide money for publication activities of faculty and students in the College.  Support is for work that has been accepted for publication rather than the writing thereof.  Such support is needed for publication; especially where a University Press is involved. This year is a poignant one as Jane Hastings passed away on March 25th. Her spirit and legacy live on in our college and our faculty and students today.   

This year $3,000 in supplements will be available from July 2024 to June 2025.


  • The award prioritizes the publication of research results rather than the writing of such.


  • Friday, April 5, 2024: application period opens
  • Monday, May 6, 2024: application deadline (11:59pm Pacific)
  • Friday, May 31, 2023: awardees notified

Application Format

Please submit a written narrative (maximum of one page) addressing the following: 

  • 1) a brief statement of purpose describing the work that has been accepted for publication and its relevance to the College and/or professions
  • 2) the estimated cost of publication and other sources of funding contracted or in hand
  • 3) the intended audience
  • 4) the publication deadline.

Please submit applications to be-research@uw.edu via e-mail with the title “Submission – Johnston Hastings Travel- YOUR NAME”.

Terms and Conditions

  • Material submitted for publication is expected to reflect the specialized interest of the College and its disciplines, faculty, and students.
  • Recipients are asked to include appropriate acknowledgement of the support in the pages of any resulting publication.
  • On publication, recipients are to donate one copy of the book to the BE Library.
  • Johnston/Hastings Endowment funds may be used for direct publication costs only.  Such costs may include a direct publication subvention (paid to an Academic Press), or the cost of acquisition of photographs (or rights to publish photographs), or similar costs. 
  • Costs for which the Johnston/Hastings funds may not be used include copy editing, preparing an index, preparing a glossary, or other similar costs for tasks that faculty are typically able to do themselves.
