GSE Research Partnership Support Program funds are dedicated to provide funds to generate a partnership or collaborative.
Faculty support is available in amounts appropriate for the scope of work proposed ranging up to $1000. Applicants are encouraged to submit competitive projects less than the budget cap, when appropriate.
Funding may be used for a one-day trip to Washington D.C. to meet with program officer, bring in a speaker or consultant, complete training, or pay a consultant for outside review. These examples are meant to be illustrative and nonexclusive – purpose is to off-set expenses that would prevent faculty from developing a partnership or collaborative. Competitive applications will clearly describe how the funding or resources will support the applicant’s formative research collaborative or partnership (e.g., lead to a pilot study; develop a white paper). Faculty salary is not allowed.
All full-time faculty in GSE (tenured, tenure-track, and clinical) may apply.
The Associate Dean for Interdisciplinary Research will review applications. A scoring rubric will be used to rank-order proposals. The scoring criteria will include the following:
The ADR will make recommendations to the Dean; the Dean will make award decisions and aim to notify applicants at the subsequent GSE meeting or shortly thereafter. Although the budget with its justification is not a review criterion, the ADR or Dean may recommend modification to the proposed budget.
All proposals must be in PDF format with single space, 12 point font and 1-inch margins. Proposals should be no longer than one single-spaced page (1-inch margins; 12 point font).
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
