New Horizons funding has two components:
1) Summer Faculty Research Fellowship ($7500): The New Horizons Summer Research Fellowships provide an infusion of resources for faculty members to jumpstart or fuel an ongoing research project over the summer months. Please note: As the intent is to facilitate concentrated research during the summer months, this fellowship may not be combined with other U of I summer monies or appointments (for example, for teaching or administrative appointments).
2) Undergraduate Research Assistantship in the Humanities ($2500): Giving undergraduate humanities majors an opportunity to participate in faculty research projects is a matter of particular urgency at this historical moment in the history of public higher education. Each New Horizons Summer Research Fellow will be allocated resources to hire an undergraduate research assistant to aid in their work as they see fit (details of pay, work schedule, and so on, are to be determined by the faculty fellow in consultation with the appropriate business and HR officers in the fellow’s departmental unit[s]).
We are currently accepting applications for work to be undertaken in summer 2017. Three fellows will be chosen by an ad hoc committee organized by the IPRH Director.
The deadline for applications is January 13, 2017 by 5:00 p.m.. Awardees will be notified no later than March 15, 2017.
