Funding Opportunities for the week of February 10-14, 2020

INTERNAL: 4W Innovation Grants for Faculty and Staff are provided as general support – which can be used toward summer salary, course buy out, or other arrangement with school or department – to allow a faculty or academic staff member to devote time to develop a key initiative related to gender and wellbeing. Projects should align with the vision and core values of the 4W program, and should have a research-to-action focus that aims to enhance gender equity in communities locally or globally. Such projects should also employ gender analyses and/or use an intersectional feminist lens to address equity for all. Two to four awards are expected to be made in amounts up to $7,500. Applications are due March 2, 2020.

4W Engagement Grants for Emerging Scholars are intended to flexibly support graduate students in any relevant discipline who are engaged in work related to gender and wellbeing. Grant awards of up to $2,500 may be used for project expenses or travel related to community-based research or practice. Applications are due March 2, 2020.

Q&A sessions on these two 4W grant programs will be held Feb. 13th and Feb. 20th from 4-5pm in 4285F NNH.
