Encouraging new collaborations for expressive projects

2016 PROPOSALS: SUBMISSIONS OPEN

The ExCITe Center announces a new call for novel, transdisciplinary research projects providing the opportunity to develop concepts that may be difficult to support through traditional channels.

  • Funding up to $5000 per project (awards will vary by project needs)
  • Use of the ExCITe Center facility for project work (as appropriate)
  • Additional opportunities for engagement with other ExCITe Center projects and participants

Requirements

  • The project team must be transdisciplinary and include at least one Drexel participant. This includes any current Drexel student, faculty, or staff member.
  • Project timelines will vary: three to nine months is a reasonable range for project duration.
  • All funding must be spent during the fiscal year of its awarding.
  • Indirect costs (organizational or institutional overhead) will not be supported and should not be included.
  • Awarded projects will be required to submit progress reports and to participate in monthly events and presentations at the ExCITe Center.
