GLOBAL SYNERGY RESEARCH GRANTS (FACULTY)

FACULTY GRANT                                                     Student Grant (Click here)

This program seeks to expand Purdue's research reputation in the arts, humanities, and social sciences by fostering global collaboration and innovation. 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 projects between College of Liberal Arts faculty and faculty at an international institution; and

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

Preference will be given to projects creating partnerships in strategic geographic areas identified by the University, including Latin America, South Asia, and Southeast Asia; however, research projects engaging other regions will also be considered. 

Applications will be evaluated by a faculty committee, appointed by the dean of the College and served upon by the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education. Other faculty inside or outside of the college will serve as ad hoc reviewers when their participation would give the committee the expertise needed for reviewing specific proposals.  Previous award recipients should note that their status as return applicants may be taken into consideration.

In judging the proposals, reviewers will be asked to use several criteria:

(a) the quality of the applicants’ previous research in the social sciences, humanities, or arts;

(b) the potential for projects to make significant and original contributions to knowledge at a global level;

(c) the collaborative scope of the project from a global perspective;

(d) the potential for projects to enhance the visibility and reputations of the applicants, their departments, and the CLA; and

(e) the degree to which the projects would increase the applicants’ success in future applications for external funding.

Eligibility:  All CLA tenured and tenure-track faculty who have plans for research projects in the social sciences, humanities, and the arts are eligible to apply. A faculty member may submit only one application per year.

Project Summary: 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. 

Previous recipients of Internal Purdue CLA Research Grant Awards >$10,000 must have subsequently submitted external grant/fellowship application requests that total at least $15,000 before another award may be granted for funding from the Enhancing Humanities, Exploratory Social Science or Global Synergy Grants programs”.

Number of Awards:  Budgeted at a total support of $50K per year from the College of Liberal Arts, the program will fund approximately two to six projects annually.

Allowable Expenses: Faculty may request funds for a wide variety of research expenses:

  • Travel for collaborative meetings

  • Visits by collaborating faculty members from international institutions to Purdue

  • Summer salary (or a summer fellowship)

  • Travel to international research sites or archives with unique collections

  • Expenses in mounting an artistic exhibition or preparing for a performance internationally

  • Payments to graduate or undergraduate research assistants collaborating on the project

  • Seminar, workshop, or conference funds when interchange, discussion, and argument are crucial for a project

*Faculty are not required to prepare the budget through Pre-Award.  Links will also be provided to aid faculty in estimating travel costs in accordance with Purdue policy. No funds will be provided for faculty salaries during the academic year.
