CCI Interdisciplinary Seed Grants

Deadline: November 1, 2017

In conjunction with the establishment of a university-wide Clemson Caribbean Initiative (CCI), the CCI Steering Committee announces a Call for Proposals for Caribbean Interdisciplinary Seed Grants. The purposes of the CCI Interdisciplinary Seed Grants are to: 1) foster interdisciplinary projects relevant to the Caribbean region and 2) provide seed funding for potential scaling up of Caribbean-relevant projects in the future.

Projects that are responsive to the principles of the CCI are the focus of this seed grant program. Projects should include Clemson University faculty from two or more disciplines, drawing from the sciences, arts and humanities, and/or professional and applied fields. Projects with an emphasis on any aspect of Clemson University’s land grant mission -- teaching, research and scholarship, and service -- are eligible. Collaborators and field work in the Caribbean are eligible, but not required. Products may include reports, datasets, grant proposals, curricula, exhibits, student engagement projects, or other materials.

A total of $50,000 in funding has been provided for the CCI Interdisciplinary Seed Grants by: Clemson’s Public Service and Agriculture (PSA), Office of Global Engagement (OGE), College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS), and College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS). Up to $10,000 in support is available for each project.
