The Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) invites proposals for our Faculty Interactive Research Program. The purpose of the program is to encourage University faculty members to carry out research projects that involve a significant urban-related public policy issue for the state or its communities, and that include active engagement with groups, agencies, or organizations in Minnesota involved with the issue.
Research projects should focus on issues and concerns important to Minnesota, such as communities of color, the criminal justice system, demography, state or local economic development, education, employment, energy, the environment, health, housing, state and local government, welfare and poverty, human and social services, transportation, or land use and development.
Eligibility: Applications are invited from all University faculty members who, in conformity with the tenure regulations, are classified as "regular" (tenure code = P,N,C) members of the faculty. The program is designed particularly for faculty who hold nine-month appointments (appointment term not equal to "A"), although we have occasionally supported projects of regular faculty on twelve-month appointments. In special cases we can support joint projects.
Application materials may be mailed to Faculty Interactive Research Program, CURA, 330 HHH Center, 301--19th Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55455, e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to 612-626-0273.
Deadline: Applications must be received in the CURA office by 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 30, 2012. Grant recipients will be notified in April.
