CLAS DSHB Faculty Scholar Award

The Developmental Sciences Hybridoma Bank (DSHB) Awards provide support to tenured CLAS faculty for an approved research project within the humanities. The award is expected to result in at least one project for publication, or a national/ international presentation.

Awards are valued at $2,500, and may be used for professional travel, equipment, or other research needs. Funds must be spent within two years of receipt of the award.

By October 15, 2020, eligible faculty should complete the application which can be found here and add a one-page narrative proposal. The complete application, along with a two-page CV, is sent to the DEO(s) for review and endorsement.

By November 1, 2020, if the DEO(s) endorses the proposal with a letter(s) of support, they sign the application and submit it along with the abbreviated CV as a single pdf to: Allison Bierman.

Applications are reviewed for approval by the CLAS Dean and Associate Deans. Please contact Allison Bierman (335-3994), CLAS Dean’s Office, with questions.
