Program Description

This program seeks to enhance Purdue’s national and international reputation of research in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.  It will provide financial support for three kinds of research projects:

(a) research proposed in collaboration with an individual faculty member at an international institution;

(b) collaborative student projects involving CLA faculty partnering with faculty at an international institution; and

(c) collaborative student projects at the institutional level involving the College of Liberal Arts and an international institution. 

Student projects should have at least one faculty sponsor from each institution in order to qualify for the grant.

Emphases will be given on projects that engage partnerships in strategic geographic areas identified by the University including Latin America and South and Southeast Asia; however, research projects in other regions will also be considered. Students may earn research credits for their work through collaboration with a sponsoring faculty member.

Level of Funding

Budgeted at a total support of $50K per year, the program will fund approximately two to six projects annually.  Each grant will be for one calendar year.  The budget for each project will be between $5K and $25K.

Timeline

The starting date for funded projects will be January 1 and all funds must be expended by the end of December.

All previous recipients of Internal Purdue CLA Research Grants must submit a brief 1-2 pg.report of the outcomes of their previous grants to the Associate Dean’s office (cla-adr@purdue.edu) within 6 months of the close of their project period or before submitting another internal funding proposal.  Reports must include information about all grant and fellowship proposals and awards submitted since the funded grant application as well as the status of publications/exhibitions/presentations and other outcomes of the funded project.
