Colgate faculty may submit proposals for research on topics related to the broad region of upstate New York. Faculty members or groups of faculty may also propose to organize a scholarly symposium, conference, or workshop that addresses issues concerning or related to the upstate New York region.
A faculty member receiving an award for research is expected to share either the final or preliminary results of the study in a future Upstate Institute event and through inclusion in the Upstate Institute collection in Digital Commons. The Upstate Institute is normally able to fund projects with budgets up to $5,000. The Institute also supports faculty research in the form of $500 discretionary grants, and via support for publication costs. Applications for discretionary grant support may be made via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
at any time in the academic year, while a request for proposals for faculty research is usually available each January. Please contact Chris Henke
or Julie Dudrick
if you have questions about the eligibility of projects for Upstate Institute support.
