What is Summer Salary and how do I calculate it?

Summer salary is compensation paid to academic appointed faculty that perform research on a grant or contract during the summer months of May, June, July, and August. For grant and contract funded research, Summer Salary is limited to 3 months (SBU’s academic year is generally 9 months). To calculate summer salary simply divide your academic year salary by 9 and then multiply it by 3 (or the portion of the summer available to you after teaching, other duties, and/or vacation time have been accounted for). Please note that certain external sponsors may have their own policies regarding summer salary payments to faculty and/or principal investigators.
