2020 Summer Research Program Call for Proposals
Library & Information Technology Summer Research Grants support faculty interested in utilizing digital tools and methods to further their research. These grants are aligned with the University’s digital scholarship initiative, whereby research is enhanced, extended, or reconsidered through application of technology and furthers the goal of engaging students in digital scholarship outside of the classroom. Proposals should focus on a faculty member’s professional research; student participants should engage in digital forms of analysis and/or publication that contribute to the larger research project. Grants provide $3,000 for student summer funding and a stipend of $500 for the faculty member.
If you want to learn more about the Summer Research Project (SRP) grants, please review the application guidelines on the Digital Pedagogy and Scholarship website.
You can view examples from previous years. Applicants are expected to discuss their proposal with a Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship staff member in advance of submitting an application, and to identify in the proposal specific staff and technology support that is required to undertake the research project.
SRP proposals for the summer of 2020 are due by Friday, Feb. 21, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Grants are competitive and will be evaluated by the Associate Provost, Associate Deans, and CLIR in consultation with L&IT. Applicants will be notified before spring break.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or for more information.
