Arts and Humanities Research Support - Informational Meeting Sept. 20 and LOIs due Oct. 18

The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to announce our twelfth year of Arts and Humanities Research Support for research, creative, and scholarly projects that engage the arts, design, and/or humanities in carrying out the university’s research mission. Proposed projects should lay the foundation for further work beyond the award end date. If appropriate, the proposed projects should also result in external funding, such as a fellowship award, commission or grant to continue or expand the project. Funds can support research personnel, access to hardtofind documents, materials, equipment, travel, and supplemental summer salary. Requests for course buyouts and summer salary supplements must be approved by the applicant’s college with summer salary supplements capped at one month for one summer.

The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) will host an informational meeting on Friday, September 20 from 2 to 3 p.m. in conference room A (sixth floor) of 5057 Woodward Avenue to allow full-time faculty and lecturers interested in applying for Arts and Humanities Research Support to share project ideas and ask questions about the review process. Potential applicants are highly encouraged to attend; however, if schedule conflicts prevent participation in the meeting, questions may be addressed to Sarah James in OVPR at sjames@wayne.edu or 577-8997.
