The Center for Urban Research, Teaching and Outreach is seeking proposals for two $2,500 grants to support applications of digital media to research or teach on urban issues.
Grants may be used in summer 2017 or during the 2017-18 academic year. Successful applicants must show meaningful participation by undergraduates. Staff from the Digital Scholarship Lab will be available for technical support.
Potential projects include (but are not limited to):
- Course-related projects that are integral to course content and to students’ final grades.
- Providing technical support, server space, software or other support for a team of unpaid student interns working on a discrete portion of a larger project.
- Employing one student intern (10 hours per week for 14 weeks).
As a condition of the grant, project leaders and representative students will participate on a panel about faculty-student projects at the third annual 2017 Imagining Digital Scholarship at Marquette symposium.
Funds cannot be used for course buyouts or summer faculty salaries. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged.
Proposals should be submitted electronically to Sam Harshner, assistant director of CURTO, by Saturday, April 15. They should include:
- A two-page description of the project, including its objectives, significance, relationship to applicant’s larger teaching responsibilities or research agenda, intended audience, and the ways in which students will be incorporated into the project.
- A two-page CV for all faculty involved in the project.
Questions about the grant program should be directed to James Marten, acting director of CURTO and chair, Department of History.
