Crossdisciplinary Research Clusters
Posted: 4/11/2017 (Funding)
Crossdisciplinary Research Clusters are intended to seed new scholarly activity and develop further pathways for collaboration by bringing together UW faculty and graduate students from different departments and disciplines who share research interests. Projects in this category may vary widely in form and scale: innovative models beyond the speaker series are encouraged, as are clusters that develop emerging fields and communities of inquiry, crossdisciplinary or crossdepartmental curricula, and individual and/or collective documents.
- Proposal Narratives (limit eight pages) should:
- detail the focus of the cluster and the activities to be funded
- address near-term goals, and longer-term ambitions if cluster is intended to lead to other forms of collaboration and project development
- include a list three or more participating faculty and graduate students
- Budgets should detail anticipated expenses (e.g. honoraria, travel, accommodations, promotional materials, printing, postage, hospitality, and facilities rentals) as applicable.
- C.V.s for primary project liaison (limited to five pages), and, key organizers (optional—may also be represented in the narrative or an appendix as short bios).
