Collaboration Studio Grants

Fall Funding Round only.

Description/ Purpose of the Award:
Collaboration Studio grants provide focused, quarter-long opportunities for crossdisciplinary/cross-departmental groups of two to four faculty members to work together to catalyze, deepen, or reconfigure research projects with near- or long-term goals of publication/dissemination, in traditional or diverse formats.

Studio grants may be used to lay the foundations for a long-term research project and collaboration or to move an existing collaboration towards writing and publishing project insights and outcomes. While the studio provides time for intensive collaboration, work is expected to continue throughout the year-long granting period and beyond.

Eligibility: Proposals must be advanced by cross-departmental pairs or teams. The initiative is primarily intended to advance projects for ladder faculty, but teams may, with justification, include a graduate student, lecturer, and/or staff member.

Terms of the Award:
Studio grants take the form of one course release per studio faculty member or a summer stipend of approximately $5,800 each, to be taken simultaneously by all studio members in the quarter they designate for their studio work.
