All,

Two opportunities to fund or support pedagogy-related projects have come across my desk in the past week or so, and I wanted to be sure to share them with you. Below is a summary of each opportunity; the full text of the opportunity follows the summary in the same order.

Funding for Cultural Events: Application deadline March 8
The Cultural Affairs Committee funds cultural events fund cultural events (such as lectures, concerts, exhibitions, and theatrical performances) that have the potential to generate broad-based interest within the University Community. Applications must have the support of one or more University departments/programs to be considered.  Applications that share several sponsors and/or funding sources and relate to the University’s teaching program are especially encouraged.

Support for Creativity, Innovation & Entrepreneurship-Themed Courses: Application deadline February 18
The Creativity, Innovation, & Entrepreneurship Committee invites proposals for CIE-themed course support.   This is a great opportunity if you are looking for ways to do collaborative teaching, either with other faculty at UR or with non-UR folks.


CULTURAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
SPRING APPLICATION DEADLINE: Friday, March 8, 2019

The Cultural Affairs Committee seeks to fund cultural events (such as lectures, concerts, exhibitions, and theatrical performances) that have the potential to generate broad-based interest within the University Community.  Applications must have the support of one or more University departments/programs to be considered.  Applications that share several sponsors and/or funding sources and relate to the University’s teaching program are especially encouraged.  All members of the University community, including student organizations, may submit applications for funding.

Applications for Cultural Affairs Committee funding are reviewed once each in the fall and spring semesters for events to take place in the following academic year (i.e. grant applications received in 2018-19 are for events to take place in the 2019-20 academic year).  Approximately 60% of the committee’s funding is allocated during the fall application review session, and approximately 30% is allocated in the spring.

The remaining 10% of the annual budget is reserved for same-year funding (events taking place in spring 2019).  Same-year funding is limited to less costly events, with grant-awards not to exceed $1,500.  All same-year funding applications are due at the fall application deadline.

Please take special note of the following items:

  1.  All applications must use our online submission form. Copy and paste the following link into your browser and enter the requested information: https://facultysenate.richmond.edu/committees/forms/cultaff_grantapp.html
  2.  Support letters should be submitted online to cultaffinbox at richmond.edu<https://exchangemail.richmond.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=fD19AJsuakmofVYR5ieK-DlyE8nXutIIhUfvMK6bZPDtxgwp-jndm7hUcK7_FmdkBQJHUo8-3C0.&URL=mailto%3acultaffinbox%40richmond.edu>.  All co-sponsors should submit a letter of support, even if not contributing funds to the event.
  3.  If an application lists a program or department as benefiting from an event, a representative of that program or department should submit a letter of support for the proposal.
  4.  If an application lists specific courses as benefiting from an event, professors for those courses should each submit a brief letter of support.
  5.  If an application plans to use Modlin Center facilities or resources, Deborah Sommers (dsommers at richmond.edu<mailto:dsommers at richmond.edu>) should be contacted to check availability.
  6.  All proposals require an itemized budget.  If the financial details for a proposal cannot be accommodated by the application form, the committee welcomes a supplemental budget (in Word or Excel format) also submitted to cultaffinbox at richmond.edu<https://exchangemail.richmond.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=fD19AJsuakmofVYR5ieK-DlyE8nXutIIhUfvMK6bZPDtxgwp-jndm7hUcK7_FmdkBQJHUo8-3C0.&URL=mailto%3acultaffinbox%40richmond.edu>.
  7.  All successful grant applicants must submit a final report to the committee detailing how grant funds were used.  This report is due by the end of the academic year in which the event takes place.  A final report form can be found at https://facultysenate.richmond.edu/committees/pdf/cultural-affairs/cultaff_final_report.pdf
