S.M. Elliott Cross-Disciplinary Grant Program Submissions Deadline Jan. 15
The Elliott Cross-Disciplinary Program is a multi-year endeavor funded by the generous contribution from Scott M. Elliott, 1985 alum of the Department of Economics. The Pilot Program will provide interdisciplinary research teams with initial funds to conduct preliminary research with the objective of a grant submission for external funding from government agencies and foundations. More information is available at http://economics.illinoisstate.edu/about/grants.shtml
The objective of the pilot grant program is to foster greater collaboration between faculty in the Department of Economics and the rest of the University in the enhancement of external grant funding. Specifically, the pilot grant program will provide interdisciplinary research teams with initial funds to conduct preliminary research with the objective of a grant submission for external funding from government agencies and/or foundations in the amount of at least $100,000.
Proposals must be received from teams of at least two faculty members. Members from all Colleges are welcome to submit proposals with the stipulation that at least one faculty member from the Department of Economics is an active member of the research team. All faculty, regardless of employment status (tenured, tenure-track, or NTT), are invited to participate in the program. Possible research areas are cultural economics, health economics, economics of technology and innovation, economics of education, agricultural economics, etc.
The distribution of indirect funds generated from a successful external grant submission as a result of this pilot grant program will be negotiated between the Chair of the Department of Economics and members of the research team.
