The Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, or OVPRED, has announced the 2022 call for proposals for Pilot 2 of the Creative Work and Social Impact Scholarship Funding Program, or CWSIS, and the Research Support Program, or RSP.

The CWSIS fosters innovation and discovery, and builds faculty reputation and competitiveness. Examples of prestigious recognition for CWSIS include: the McArthur Genius Award, the Gates Foundation Award, appointment to the National Council on the Humanities or the National Council on the Arts, and an NSF Senior Advisor for Public Access. Disciplines associated with CWSIS include design and the arts, humanities, and applicable areas within business, education, social sciences, and health and well-being. Funding for awards up to $20,000 is provided by the OVPRED with a minimum 1:1 match.

The RSP is intended to be an annual cycle funding program to foster the development and growth of innovative and transformational research activities. The RSP builds on faculty expertise, stimulates interdisciplinary collaborations, and strengthens seed research activities. Funding for awards up to $25,000 is provided by the OVPRED with a minimum 1:1 match.

Proposals undergo thorough internal and external evaluations. Funding for awards is for a two-year period.
