This year’s Spring Funding Round opens on March 13. Funding covers the term July 2020-June 2021. The deadline for all Spring Funding Round applications is May 1.

This spring, the Simpson Center will accept applications for the following funding categories:

  • Colloquia and Conferences include speaker series, international research, and working conferences, and are selected for support based on their crossdisciplinary and interdisciplinary focus.
  • Crossdisciplinary Research Clusters seed new collaborations between faculty and graduate students who share research interests.
  • Graduate Research Clusters encourage crossdisciplinary collaboration among graduate students through organized readings, screenings, dissertation working groups, or other activities.
  • Large-scale Collaborations fund extended, crossdisciplinary collaborative projects which are often aligned with Simpson Center initiatives.
  • Research Methods Exploration Award supports research projects of a faculty member that would benefit from cross-disciplinary engagement with a faculty member in another field.

We encourage applicants to meet with us before submitting a proposal. To schedule a meeting, contact Assistant Director Rachel Arteaga. You can learn more about our funding categories and how to apply on our Apply for Support page.
