Library & Information Technology Summer Research Grants support faculty interested in utilizing digital tools and methods to further their research. These grants are aligned with the University’s digital scholarship initiative, whereby research is enhanced, extended, or reconsidered through application of technology and furthers the goal of engaging students in digital scholarship outside of the classroom. Proposals should focus on a faculty member’s professional research; student participants should engage in digital forms of analysis and/or publication that contribute to the larger research project. Grants provide $3,000 for student summer funding and a stipend of $500 for the faculty member.
If you want to learn more about the Summer Research Project (SRP) grants, please review the application guidelines on the Digital Scholarship Center website. Applicants are expected to discuss their proposal with a member of Library & IT in advance of submitting an application, and to identify in the proposal specific staff and technology support that is required to undertake the research project. To assist faculty members in crafting applications, Digital Pedagogy & Scholarship is offering work sessions for applicants on Wednesday Dec. 6, and Tuesday Jan. 23 at noon in the Digital Scholarship Center.
SRP proposals for the summer of 2018 are due by Friday, Feb. 9, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Grants are competitive and will be evaluated by the Associate Provost, Deans, and FDC in consultation with L&IT. Applicants will be notified before spring break.
