2016 Call for Applications for the S3 (Science and Society @ State) Collaborative Grant Award

The S3 Collaborative Grant seeks to stimulate new or emerging interdisciplinary collaborations between MSU’s science studies scholars and its STEM and health sciences professionals. These interdisciplinary seed grants will be used to help create opportunities for developing collaborative research projects, hopefully resulting in increased applications for external funding, publications, and visibility for STEM and science studies research at MSU.

Funding available for each project will be in the range of $10,000. Eligible expenses include course releases (with chair/dean’s permission), support for graduate or undergraduate assistants, or other expenses that clearly promote outcomes from a new or emerging interdisciplinary collaboration.

To be eligible, interdisciplinary teams must:

  • Consist of one or more MSU STEM and/or health-sciences professionals
  • Consist of one of more MSU science studies scholars who examine scientists and/or science from a social science and/or humanistic perspective
  • Collaborative teams must have been formed recently and/or be working on a new topic of investigation
  • The immediate goal of the collaboration should be applying for external funding

The grant may not be used to fund extensions to existing grants or established research programs.

Note: The team may include a graduate student and/or postdoc if appropriate.  The grant may not be used to fund extensions to existing grants or established research programs.
