The Center for Global and Area Studies (CGAS) is pleased to announce the Global and Area Studies Grants program for full-time University of Delaware faculty. This competitive grant program provides awards of up to $5,000 each to support international research. All grant recipients are expected to present their research results as part of the Issues in Global Studies (ARSC300) public lecture series.
Funds may be used for travel, research costs, and other expenses directly related to the proposed activities. Salary and stipends are not eligible for funding in this grant program. No cost share is required. Faculty teams may apply for a joint award, but the $5,000 grant ceiling still applies. Preference will be given to faculty who have not received awards from CGAS in the last three years, and whose scholarship contributes to the Area Studies programs at UD. The award period runs from June 1, 2015-May 31, 2016.
The deadline for applications is April 6, 2015.
Proposals must include:
1. A two-page narrative explaining the significance of the project, potential contributions to the field, and relevance to Area Studies.
2. A budget page and justification for the line items.
3. A detailed timeline of the project
4. A curriculum vitae
Deadline: April 6, 2015.
Send your applications via email to Bess Davis (firstname.lastname@example.org). A CGAS faculty committee will review the proposals and make recommendations. Questions should be addressed to Cynthia Schmidt-Cruz, Interim Director of CGAS.
Grants recipients will be notified by May 1, 2015.
