Weiser Faculty Grants 2012-13 Call for Proposals
The Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia (WCEE) seeks proposals for faculty-led research projects that engage European and Eurasian contextual expertise and/or broader thematic focus on emerging democracies. Eligibility: University of Michigan faculty associated with CES, CREES, and/or WCED. Funds may be requested for pilot projects or to supplement existing projects. Faculty may seek funds to: pursue individual research projects; bring a colleague from the region to participate in a class, conference, or ongoing workshop; initiate a thematic or geographic workshop series that draws on faculty and/or engages students; travel to Europe or Eurasia to design a research partnership with scholars and students from a particular institution; or work with NGOs to devise scholarly partnerships that will extend the public good. We encourage inventive ideas, especially those that involve multiple faculty members and students and welcome projects that engage WCED’s thematic concern for emerging democracies. Awards range from $500 to $5,000, depending on the number and character of successful proposals. The next deadline for submission will be announced.
