Colgate faculty may submit proposals for research on topics related to the broad region of upstate New York. Faculty members or groups of faculty may also propose to organize a scholarly symposium, conference, or workshop that addresses issues concerning or related to the upstate New York region.
A faculty member receiving an award for research is expected to share either the final or preliminary results of the study in a future Upstate Institute event and through inclusion in the Upstate Institute collection in Digital Commons. The Upstate Institute is normally able to fund projects with budgets up to $5,000. The Institute also supports faculty research in the form of $500 discretionary grants, and via support for publication costs. Applications for discretionary grant support may be made via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please contact Ellen Kraly
or Julie Dudrick if you have questions about the eligibility of projects for Upstate Institute support.
