POSTPONED NIH and NSF Funding for the Arts & Humanities
This event will be rescheduled for a later date. Please contact our office at 432-4499 if you have any questions or concerns.
The arts and humanities possess understanding of the human condition that can enhance the work of scientists across the academy. Some of the greatest minds in history -- Michelangelo, Einstein, Newton, McClintock, Carson and George Carver – have worked at the intersection of the arts, humanities, and the sciences.
In this mixer, we will explore opportunities for artists and humanists to collaborate with scientists on NIH and NSF funded research projects. We are interested in convening a group that includes artists and humanists interested in these possibilities, along with scientists and others who would be excited about working on funded projects with artists and humanists. Participants shall be encouraged to develop research capacity and research excellence in arts/humanities/science research partnerships and thereby lay the groundwork for competitive grant applications to NSF and NIH.
The session will:
- support national and international knowledge mobilization involving arts, humanities, and science within and/or beyond the MSU research community
- provide support for knowledge mobilization, research training, and mentoring involving the arts, humanities, and the sciences
- encourage researchers to utilize MSU resources for support
- discuss the criteria for success in the grant seeking enterprise
The event includes the discussion forum along with a reception.
