DEADLINE APPROACHING. The Faculty/Professional Staff Research and Creative Activity Grant Program is designed to support faculty in all disciplines to begin or maintain a research agenda or to conduct creative activities. Applicants may request up to $3,000 for the funding period ending June 30, 2018 (target date for expending funds; project activities may continue past this date). Funds awarded through this program may only be used to cover costs associated with the proposed research or creative activity, such as necessary travel (to conduct the work), supplies, analysis costs, student assistants, etc.
Grant applicants must be paid employees of SUNY Oneonta at least through the spring 2018 semester. Adjunct and part-time instructors are welcome to submit applications, provided they have a contract for the spring 2018 semester. Faculty on sabbatical leave in the fall 2017 or spring 2018 semesters are eligible to apply. Priority in funding decisions will be given to junior faculty and applicants who have not received previous awards, and to projects that engage students, as defined in the College’s Strategic Plan 2015.
The application deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, 11 October 2017. Guidelines and application materials are available on the GDO website. Questions? Contact Chris Barberio (x2434) or Kathy Meeker (x2632).
On Wednesday, October 18, at 7-8:30pm, the Anthropology Department continues its series of conversations about how anthropologists think, talk, and live race with a film and discussion.

Open to all.
