2019-2020 Call for Applications for the S3 (Science and Society @ State) Interdisciplinary Seed Grant

The S3 Interdisciplinary Seed Grant supports new or emerging interdisciplinary collaborations between a MSU’s science studies scholars (sociologists/historians/anthropologists/artists/STS scholars, etc. who study science and technology) and STEM/health scholars. These interdisciplinary seed grants help create opportunities for collaborative research projects between the scholars working within a scientific/medical field, and the humanists, artists or social scientists who study that field.

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 to apply 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/technology from a social scientific, artistic, STS, 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
Notes: The team may include a graduate student and/or postdoc if appropriate. The grant may not be used to fund extensions to existing grants nor established research projects.
