Proposals sought for Conversations in the Disciplines grant program| April 11, 2014
The Conversations in the Disciplines (SUNY CID) grant program is designed to bring together SUNY faculty and visiting scholars from non-SUNY institutions to examine new trends, address changes and challenges, review promising research findings, and become acquainted with professional developments in their fields and on other campuses. SUNY CID focuses on scholarly and creative development (rather than administrative, curricular or instructional matters) designed to foster both professional and personal growth of participants and their respective campuses.
Approved conferences will normally occur between September 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. A maximum award of $5,000 will be made available to help support each approved conference.
Any academic department or equivalent organizational unit, such as a center or a library, may develop a proposal for planning and hosting a conference. Multidisciplinary and collaborative efforts, particularly those involving other SUNY campuses, are actively encouraged. Only one proposal may be submitted per department per year, whether submitted singly or jointly. Proposals must be submitted through appropriate campus channels. SUNY CID funding is not intended to support meetings of groups or professional organizations that would be held irrespective of program support.
Proposals will be reviewed by the University Faculty Senate’s Committee on Programs and Awards (Committee). The Committee will in turn make recommendations to the SUNY Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, who will make the final award determinations.
The deadline for receipt of proposals to the State University Faculty Senate is Friday, April 18, 2014. Proposals must be uploaded to the Conversations website
, where the full call for proposals is also available.
