Funding Opportunities for UChicago Faculty

Course Development Grants for Faculty

Deadline: Friday, October 19, 2018

The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality is offering $1500 in research award funding for UChicago faculty who develop a new course in gender and/or sexuality studies, to be run in two of the next three years. Senior and junior faculty are invited to apply.

The process: Submit a one-page description/proposal for a new course to Gina Olson (golson@uchicago.edu) by October 19 (end of third week). Please indicate the general outline of the course, the students for whom it would be most appropriate (undergrad, MAPH/MAPSS, graduate), and the gap it fills in current offerings. We will select the proposals to receive awards by October 31.

Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality
Call for Proposals: Faculty Projects and Faculty-Led Events for 2019-20

Deadline: TBD, Spring 2019

The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality seeks to advance new forms of interdisciplinary knowledge, connecting academic learning to worldly problems and contexts by engaging scholars both within and outside the confines of the University, and facilitating new conversations across disciplines. Through our projects and events, we engage in original research, fieldwork and critical textual analyses designed to produce new knowledge and insights into contemporary debates in feminist, queer and sex theory.

The CSGS provides funding for a limited number of faculty projects and faculty-run events. Faculty projects for 2018-19 have already been awarded. Please check back for the deadline for 2019-20, which will be in Spring 2019.

University of Chicago faculty and post-doctoral fellows interested in organizing and running a project or an event at the Center should submit a proposal according to the guidelines below. Collaborative projects or events with other UChicago faculty, graduate or undergraduate students, or community groups are encouraged.

1) Faculty Projects: Projects feature a multi-part series of programs: lectures, media screenings, a conference, workshops, or seminars, etc. over the course of the academic year. Projects are eligible for funds up to $5,000 to cover programming and project costs for the year, based on the budget submitted. Faculty directors will also receive a research stipend of $3,000 and $1,000 for a research assistant. The proposal should include: A description and objectives of the project; sponsoring faculty (names and departments), students and any others who would be involved; relevant dates (estimated or confirmed, please note which); proposed venue; and possible partners or co-sponsors. A rough budget should also be attached, estimating event costs: Honoraria, airfare and hotel, food/catering, poster and other publicity, audio-visual, venue or recording expenses, other materials or planning costs.

2) Faculty-Led Event Proposals: We welcome proposals for single lectures, seminars, conferences, short series, workshops, etc. Funding will be based on the scope of the event and the budget submitted, to a limit of $2,000. The proposal should include: A description of the event; sponsoring faculty (names and departments), students and any others who would be involved; proposed dates (estimated or confirmed, please note which); proposed venue; and possible partners or co-sponsors. A rough budget should also be attached, estimating event costs: Honoraria, airfare and hotel, food/catering, poster and other publicity, audio-visual, venue or recording expenses, other materials or planning costs. Proposals may be made for any quarter in 2019-20.
