Collaborative Faculty Grants
Collaborative Faculty Grants promote innovative, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research on issues closely aligned with the Kellogg Institute research themes. Collaborative projects might include the expansion of faculty members’ current projects or the instigation of new collaborative ventures.
The Institute seeks to support scholarly projects that have significant interdisciplinary and collaborative components and an ambitious mix of programmatic elements. Funded projects will transcend those eligible for Kellogg funding in the categories of individual faculty research, working group, or conference support.
Project leaders must be Kellogg faculty fellows, although all participants in the collaborative project need not be.
Programmatic elements may include but are not limited to: working groups; workshops, roundtables, short-term visitors, and conferences; course buy-outs; team-taught seminars or courses; and graduate student assistance.
Project funding may typically run between $10,000 and $70,000 for one or two years.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek and priority is given to projects with financial support from other sources, both internal and external to Notre Dame.
Proposals should be no more than eight double-spaced pages (not including budget and CVs) and should include:
An explanation of the innovative intellectual and/or program building importance of the project and its relevance to Kellogg priorities;
An outline of the project’s scope over one or two years;
A project timeline;
A delineation of the specific components for which funding is sought;
Abbreviated (2-3 page) CVs that highlight recent publications and other relevant work of key project participants; and
An itemized project budget.
Fit with Kellogg themes and priorities
Degree of collaborative interdisciplinarity
Potential for future publication and/or further external funding
