Ends on January 31, 2018

Deadline for Proposals is January 31, 2018

Eligibility/Grant Requirements

Full-time regular members of the Notre Dame faculty, library faculty, and special professional faculty are eligible to apply. Staff members leading programs relevant to the goals of increasing collaboration with institutions in mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and India may also submit a proposal.

Funding

Funding is available for a variety of collaborations, but preference will be given to those that promote ongoing relationships between Notre Dame and Asia and will have a measurable impact both on the local academic community and in increasing Notre Dame’s engagement in the region. The types of collaborations might include but are not limited to the following:

  • Initiating collaborative research projects (travel, research costs, etc.)
  • Sponsoring or attending research conferences and workshops hosted in mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India
  • Sponsoring educational ventures (faculty and staff exchanges, workshops, etc.)
  • Notre Dame graduate research assistant and postdoctoral fellow stipends and benefits (graduate and undergraduate student assistants must be involved in the faculty fellow’s collaborative research and writing in ways that contribute to the student’s intellectual formation)

Individual grants will not normally exceed $10,000, although large team-based proposals may request up to $20,000. The Grants Review Committee will consider proposals for any amount up to these figures. Applicants are encouraged to demonstrate other sources of funding or cost sharing which will complement the Asia Research Collaboration Grant funding. Other sources of funding may include funds dedicated to the proposed research collaboration by the international collaborators’ universities.

Awards will not support clerical or secretarial help. Awards may support expenses incurred only at Notre Dame or by Notre Dame faculty and staff (e.g. hiring of research assistants employed by and working at Asian universities will generally not be funded through the Notre Dame grant program).
