The Center for the Study of Social Justice is inviting exceptional faculty researchers to apply for participation in the center’s Fall 2012 Proposal Development Initiative. The program is intended to support researchers in applying for external funding in the social and behavioral sciences, with the goal of providing structure and support to transform a research plan into a completed proposal for submission in spring 2013.

Applicants will be selected on the basis of readiness to submit or resubmit a National Institutes of Health or National Science Foundation proposal as the principal investigator, as well as their record of publications, and the potential for funding of their research proposal. Program participants must be available to meet every other Friday from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. and must meet program goals and writing deadlines.

The submission deadline is Wednesday, August 15. Interested faculty should contact CSSJ coordinator Diana Moyer at or 865-974-5909 for information and submissions.
