UW Simpson Center Spring Funding Round: Graduate Research Clusters

Application deadline:   April 28, 2018

The Walter Chapin Simpson Center for the Humanities offers funding to support Graduate Research Clusters in order to foster crossdisciplinary collaboration and inquiry among graduate students in the form of cross-departmental reading, screening, and/or discussion groups, dissertation working groups, and other activities. Research clusters may organize activities that draw on local intellectual and cultural resources, including faculty and community leaders.

Funding is limited to $1,000, primarily intended to support meeting or workshop costs (e.g. refreshments or reproductions). The Simpson Center will provide a web presence for the project, an archive for significant activities and documents generated by the group, and scheduling privileges for Simpson Center space. Research clusters may use a portion of their funds to co-sponsor a visiting speaker organized by another campus unit or the Simpson Center, or to organize a specific activity in coordination with such a visit. Clusters are not intended to a support visiting speakers on their own resources alone.
