Jodi Crandall Fellowship for Research in LLC

Don't miss this opportunity! The deadline is February 1st

The Jodi Crandall Fellowship Award provides support for collaborative, interdisciplinary research by current LLC doctoral students who are working in teams that can include any of the following collaborators: other LLC students, LLC regular or affiliate faculty, and LLC graduates.

Applicants will submit a one-page proposal that will be considered by the Crandall Fund Advisory Board, selected by and including the LLC Director. The proposal should include a description of the project and its relevance to LLC, along with a short budget justification detailing how funds will be used.

Grant recipients will be expected to disseminate their work through avenues such as formal or informal talks on campus and in the community, a presence on the LLC website, publication (paper or online), and/or ongoing online updates.

Deadline: February 1st, 2015

Announcement of Awards: Awards announced during the spring 2015 semester.

Award Amounts: There is no set amount for the award, and no set number of grants. We will award a total of $1,000 to cover the requests of all of the applications that are evaluated as being outstanding. Any undistributed funds will roll over to the next year, and applicants can reapply.

This award can be used to support items including but not limited to: fieldwork, archival materials, research travel, equipment purchase, etc. We want the award to support LLC research. Awardees will have one year to use all funds.

Requirements: Submit a one-page application listing all student/faculty members involved in the project, their affiliation with LLC, and, for applicants, your current status in the program and progress toward degree completion.
