|Research awards $23,359 to faculty in arts, humanities and social sciences|
The UND Division of Research has awarded grants to six faculty members in the arts, humanities and social sciences. In order to support new initiatives, the Division of Research made available $50,000 to be awarded on a competitive basis to faculty in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The awards are to be used to fund research and creative activity which will benefit to the University and community. Grant recipients are required to submit a request for funding to an external agency before they will be eligible for another award from the program.
The Division of Research received nine proposals for the Spring 2008-09 call for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Awards requesting a total of $29,341 and made six awards for a total of $23,359. Proposals were judged by a committee of faculty members from departments in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, chaired by John La Duke, Associate Vice President for Research and Economic Development, on the basis of the significance of the project, the quality of the work, the likelihood of the project being completed, and the likely benefit to the University. The Committee consisted of Eric Burin (History), John La Duke (Research Development and Compliance), Donald Miller (Art and Design), Donald Poochigian (Philosophy and Religion), Olaf Berwald (Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures), and Gary Towne (Music).
