NY6 Call for Proposals: Seed Grants Available to Support New Academic Working Groups

The New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium invites faculty from the six member institutions who are currently involved in or are interested in developing new academic collaborations to submit proposals for funding to support their project(s).  Seed grants of up to $1,000 are available to support up to six new academic working groups.  Proposals submitted by June 2, 2017 will get priority consideration of funding for this upcoming academic year.  These seed grants are being made available to encourage the initiation of new partnerships between faculty who wish to work together to develop academic collaborations.  Additional funding through external grants may become available, if relevant.

How can NY6 faculty get involved?

Collaboration involving individuals from at least three of the six member schools will be considered.  Proposals are reviewed following the June 2, 2017 deadline.  

Step #1: What is your idea?

Identify a goal/problem that could be addressed better through collaboration with colleagues across the NY6.

Step #2: Who can you connect with?

Find partners who will assist you in reaching your goal, and who will add to your project team.  Need assistance finding partners?  Contact the NY6 Project Manager, Nell Bartkowiak, to get started!

Step #3: Create a plan.

Consider what resources and timeframe are needed to support the creation of a working group to move your idea into action.  See the proposal form and resources list, attached, for more information.
