CIT Interdisciplinary Grants competition: Call for Proposals
The Center for Interdisciplinary Thinking (CIT) in the College of Arts and Sciences is pleased to announce the first CIT Interdisciplinary Grants competition. This competition includes both small and large awards in the amounts of $2,000 and $10,000, respectively, to support interdisciplinary research or teaching projects that address issues not dealt with by current programs or to enhance already-existing interdisciplinary programs at Loyola. The Call for Proposals (CFP) is effective immediately and can be found at http://luc.edu/thinking/proposals/.
Proposals must be submitted by March 14, 2014. CIT will only consider electronic submissions using the Loyola Box solution provided by ITS. Box is similar to Dropbox and Google Drive, and it is simply a matter of signing in at http://luc.box.net. You simply create a folder and upload your proposal to this folder. Then you share it with firstname.lastname@example.org.
CIT was formed in fall 2013 to encourage and support current and new interdisciplinary research and teaching initiatives, especially as those initiatives enhance the undergraduate experience at Loyola. The six Fellows appointed to CIT, under the leadership of Lead Fellow Dr. Georg Thiruvathukal, have been hard at work in launching CIT. Please visit the website at: http://luc.edu/thinking/.
