Value: $7,000 maximum
Description: This program provides seed money for one-time requests and projects of short duration, which involve a significant international component and enhance knowledge generation or information exchange between Canadian and foreign academics. Priority will be given to applicants who propose to conduct primary or secondary research in or about other countries and to applications that require international travel. Preference will be given to full-time, probationary or recently tenured faculty members striving to get programs of research established and to those who, during the past three years, have not received funds through this or other centrally administered internal funding programs at Western.
NOTE: In this case, “international” refers primarily to the subject of the research and not simply to the means by which it is carried out. Applicants are encouraged to describe any plans for scholarly interactions with researchers at that location. Applicants must be eligible to hold a research grant at UWO.
Full Applications are to be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional signatures, and are to be accompanied by a completed RDAF form (bearing applicant and Assoc Dean signatures).
