FAWC mini-grants

The Faculty Assembly Women's Committee and the Office of the Provost request proposals for a variety of small grants for research, creative works, and curriculum development. Calls for proposals are sent out once a semester, typically around mid/late November for Fall semester, and mid/late April for Spring semester. The exact amount of each award and the number of awards will depend on the number and type of proposals received.

Details

  • Maximum award amount is $500.
  • Proposals may include the following types of activities, but are not limited to these:
    • Funding research activities (e.g., paying participants) for research on gender-related issues
    • Travel Funds for research or creative work for gender related issues
