2017-2018 "Small" Faculty Award Deadline - 13 January 2017
The Mind Brain Behavior Interfaculty Initiative is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for “small” MBB faculty awards. These awards fall into the $500 to $15,000 range and might typically be used for:
- Purchasing research equipment and supplies;
- Paying study participants and/or research assistants;
- Expenses associated with the planning and execution of an interdisciplinary workshop, conference, or seminar;
- Supplementing other project costs;
- Other academic activities
All Harvard faculty members who currently work or wish to work in MBB-related fields are encouraged to apply. Please note: these awards cannot be used for salary support of faculty.
The small MBB faculty awards will support projects in FY18 - projects that are carried out between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018. These small awards are intended to support faculty members who want to examine MBB-related issues through interdisciplinary research, education, or other academic experiences. Proposals must be explicitly cross-disciplinary, involving at least two principals from different disciplines.
EXPECTATIONS: Award recipients will be expected to:
- Communicate their interdisciplinary experience and scholarly results. This might include a presentation to an MBB audience or a written report.
- Submit a final report to MBB, including financial summary, at the end of the award period.
- Submit copies of any papers or publications that result from the research, and acknowledge their MBB award in such papers and publications.
