OARS, Office of the President announce new internal funding opportunity

An African-American teacher works with two African-American students in a classroom.

As part of broader university-wide diversity and inclusion efforts, Miami University’s Office of the President and the Office for the Advancement of Research and Scholarship (OARS) are issuing a special call for proposals to conduct research, scholarship, or creative activities in the areas of social justice, human rights, diversity, and inclusion. Proposals may be submitted in any of these areas, but must address a scholarly question that will lead to testable objectives or measurable outcomes.

Full-time, tenure-eligible faculty and faculty-mentored undergraduate and graduate students in good standing are eligible for funding. Individual faculty may request up to $5,000, and faculty-mentored students may request up to $2,500 in professional expense funds to conduct the proposed project. Interdisciplinary teams of three or more faculty or faculty-mentored students may request up to $15,000 (faculty) or $7,500 (students).

Project periods should cover one or two academic semesters, excluding Winter Term. Higher levels of consideration will be given to proposals that show evidence of outcomes that will lead to scholarly presentations, publications, performances, or exhibitions and/or to the submission of grant proposals to external funding agencies or foundations.

Guidelines for proposal preparation are available on the OARS website here. Applications may be submitted online here.

The deadline for submission is April 7, 2017. Announcement of awards will be made by April 28 and funding will be available after June 1, 2017.

Questions about the program may be directed to Associate Vice President Ron Scott or Associate Provost Jim Oris.
