Schubert Center for Child Studies offers internal seed grant competition for interdisciplinary research on children and adolescents

The Schubert Center for Child Studies, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University’s vice president for research and technology management, is offering a campuswide internal grant competition to seed interdisciplinary research on children and adolescents.

Research submitted for the competition should be consistent with the Schubert Center for Child Studies’ mission to bridge research, practice, policy and education for the improvement of child and adolescent well being in Greater Cleveland and beyond.

Research should fall under one of the following broad areas of child studies: mental health and well being; education; or values in children.

Preference will be given to research with a collaboration across two or more CWRU units and/or with community entities. Investigators are strongly encouraged to include potential policy and practice implications at local, state or national levels.

Proposal teams may request up to $15,000 in funding to conduct research projects of up to 12 months in duration. A total of $50,000 in funding will be made available.

The deadline to apply is March 15 at 5 p.m. The funding period will begin May 15 and last a year.

The Schubert Center will hold an information session Feb. 7 at 3 p.m. in Crawford Hall, Room 13, for faculty members interested in applying.
