Proposal development funding supports the development of projects and culminates in an application for project funding. Research teams work during Spring term (May-June) to define collaborative processes and methods, and to define the contributions of team members to the project. Funding includes collaboration space, faculty stipends, graduate and undergraduate student support, travel, and materials. We anticipate funding up to four proposal development applications per year.
The next round of applications for proposal development funding will be due on February 1, 2018; 2017 application materials and information are available to review in preparation for the next cycle of funding.
Project funding supports collaborative research funding for one to two years. University of Michigan intergenerational research teams work together to address questions or problems in the humanities. Funding includes collaboration space, 25% funding for PI, summer ninths for faculty collaborators, graduate and undergraduate student support, travel, and materials. We anticipate funding two projects per year.
Separate funding is provided for public dissemination of the results of the collaboration. During year 2 funded projects will be asked to submit a dissemination plan and budget.
Applications for project funding are due on July 1, 2017; final application materials will be available by May 1, 2017.
