Faculty: Pembroke Center Seed Grants Now Available

February 16, 2019

Are you nurturing an idea for new research? Apply by April 1, 2019 to the Pembroke Center's competitive seed grant program, which offers up to $10,000 for collaborative research initiatives that involve Brown faculty from the humanities, social sciences, creative arts and health sciences.

In keeping with the Pembroke Center's intellectual mission, the grants fund projects that examine intersecting dimensions of difference such as gender, sexuality, generation, work, class, race, ethnicity, language, citizenship and religion.

Pembroke seed grants have supported interdisciplinary projects including workshops that helped medical students develop competencies working with LGBTQ, immigrant, incarcerated and homeless patient populations; a conference that confronted how digital and virtual reality interfaces define and classify what a “normal” body type is and an international conference on the contested legacy of the Frankfurt School of critical theory.

The application deadline for seed grants is Sunday, April 1, 2019.
