The Bureau of Educational Research and the College Research Committee, honoring faculty research and scholarship in these areas, invite College of Education researchers to apply for this third call for COVID-19 Seed Grants.
This opportunity is supported, in part, by an endowment from Charles Dunn Hardie to support faculty scholarship.
Funding should address one or more of the following:
Priority Area 1: Supplemental funding for prior COVID-19 Seed Grants: This category is for recipients of funding from the Spring 2020 or Fall 2020 COVID-19 calls for proposals. You should consider this option if:
- You discovered a gap or additional need to complete the project to a higher level of quality that will improve your chances of securing future funding.
- Additional funding will improve your ability to improve or extend the work in a critical way. For example, additional data or even a second study may be helpful or early work may have revealed some additional tasks or resources that you did not anticipate.
Priority Area 2: Transition-focused, preparing for post-pandemic research. Proposals in this category will support COE researchers in preparing for anticipated changes in policies regarding in-person research for Late Summer or Fall 2021. Proposals are free to explore any research topics of interest but must include elements related to transitioning research back to in-person or hybrid models.
Priority Area 3: Theoretical or methodological innovations. For researchers who have collected novel forms of data during the pandemic, have access to other data sets that have become available either from the government or other research labs, or who are re-analyzing existing data from a novel perspective, proposals in this category can again address any viable research topic, but should emphasize the unique opportunities to creatively and innovatively transform a trajectory of research. Proposals should articulate the ways in which the project will improve chances of securing future funding.
Applicants can request funds of up to $10,000. The expected project duration is six months; where a longer duration is necessary, this should be clearly explained in the proposal. The PI should be faculty in the College of Education, and we encourage applications from both junior and senior faculty.
Proposals will be reviewed on a single submission due date: Wednesday, April 14, 2021
