Quad funds applications now being accepted
The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is accepting applications for Quadrangle Research Fund and the Quadrangle Seminar Fund.

The research fund supports research programs emphasizing cross-disciplinary initiatives that enhance faculty and graduate student research. The fund is open to tenured or tenure-track faculty in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Funding ranges from $5,000 to $25,000, varying on the duration of the project, number of researchers involved and the likelihood of disseminating findings or publishing results of the research. All applications are peer reviewed.

There are two Quadrangle Research Fund application periods: For awards beginning in winter 2002 and running through summer 2002, the deadline is Nov. 30; for awards beginning in summer 2002 term or in fall 2002, the deadline is March 31.

The Quadrangle Seminar Fund supports the development of interdisciplinary topics in a seminar setting, involving faculty and graduate students promoting interdisciplinary research. The purpose is to bring graduate students into contact with faculty researchers.

Seminar Fund grants are $5,000 and may be held for a maximum of three consecutive semesters. The deadline for these grants is Nov. 30.
