The OVPR would like to remind faculty that applications are currently being accepting for the Dr. Benjamin F. Brown IV Fund for Interdisciplinary and Collaborative Scholarship, an internal grant program that provides support for research and curriculum development projects. The program is made possible by a generous endowment gift by Dr. Clara M. Lovett in honor of her late husband.
Applicants to the program may request up to $5,000 in funding for projects addressing issues of global significance, including, but not limited to:
- Collaboration and conflict among followers of various world religions;
- The interplay of religious beliefs/practices with civil society and political authority;
- The eradication of illiteracy;
- The impact of economic development on traditional societies; and
- Global public health.
Brown Fund proposals are due at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015 for funding during the 2016 fiscal year (June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016).
