Call for Proposals – NCFR Innovations Grants

NCFR will support up to two $10,000 innovation grants over the next year. The grants program is designed to enhance interdisciplinary collaborations around issues of importance to family well-being. To that end, applicants must make a strong case that their proposed activities foster interdisciplinary collaborations, preferably among NCFR members, and support the Global Ends of NCFR. Proposals should explicitly describe how the project promotes collaborations across disciplines including but not limited to: family science, sociology, psychology, anthropology, child development, religious studies, economics, policital science, and health. We encourage projects that aim to bridge the areas of research and practice and that build on a strong theoretical framework or advance theory. The call for proposals is intentionally broad to encourage a variety of innovative proposals that meet these objectives. Note, however, that funding will not be granted for supporting conferences or workshops. Proposals must be emailed to Jeanne Strand by 11:59 p.m. CT on Sept. 1, 2015.
