Provost’s International Research Award—Call for Proposals
October 13, 2009, Volume 56, No. 07

The Provost’s Office invites applications for a new international research award, which will give $5000 to Penn faculty members to support international summer research travel.  Proposals involving one of the following partner institutions will receive priority consideration: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Tsinghua University. Extraordinary proposals for work at other institutions will also be considered.

Projects should last one to three months. Proposals may include research at universities, libraries, archives, institutes, or laboratories, as well as work with a longstanding research collaborator; they may not include travel to conferences.

Proposals are due to the Office of the Provost, 122 College Hall/6303, or via e-mail to Angela Solomon (angelams@upenn.edu), by November 16, 2009. To apply, please provide a CV, a description of your project in no more than 500 words, and a brief description of how you will use the funds.  Describe any summer research funds that you already have and how additional funding will help further your research. 

Special application materials are required for Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.  For copies of these materials—or if you have any other questions—please contact Gayle Christensen, Office of the Provost, at gaylec@upenn.edu.
