The Center for Public Policy in Diverse Societies hosts calls for proposals

March 18, 2014

The Center for Public Policy in Diverse Societies will give out funding for up to five project proposals. The Center is seeking proposals that "contribute to interdisciplinary and collaborative research on issues related to diversity in public policy or enrich the broader community's engagement with issues of diversity." The Center's vision aims "to create an intellectual environment that will foster dialogue and debate and lead to concrete policy solutions which address the opportunities and challenges of diversity."

Funds must be used within one year of receiving the award. Two types of proposals will be funded: 1) Interdisciplinary, collaborative research grants (up to $5,000/ award or up to $15,000 for a faculty led project) and 2) Collaborative program grants that engage the community (up to $2,000/award).

All University of Michigan faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and doctoral students are eligible to apply. Proposals are due by April 4, 2014 and awardees will be notified by April 21, 2014.
