Collaborative Research Seed Grant

Award Name: 
Collaborative Research Seed Grant
Award Description: 
Collaborative research-the joint conceptualization, execution, and dissemination of research by teams of two or more scholars-has the potential to bring a new depth and breadth to humanities scholarship. Research teams can ask more complex questions than single researchers can address alone. Scholars who combine their individual expertise to address the important issues of our time can together alter existing paradigms of scholarship and open new doors of inquiry and presentation. The CRSG program is part of a broader Hall Center initiative to promote and facilitate collaborative research in the humanities and humanities-oriented social sciences. The goal is to encourage KU faculty members conducting humanities-oriented research to stretch beyond the traditional single investigator model and fully engage with at least one partner in a collaborative research endeavor. Teams should propose original research projects designed to produce results neither investigator could easily accomplish alone. The immediate aim of this program is to fund the early stages of collaborative research projects and enhance their competitiveness for extramural grants.
