Seed Grant Competition for Child and Adolescent Research

The Schubert Center for Child Studies, in collaboration with the CWRU Vice President for Research and Technology Management, is pleased to announce a campus-wide internal grant competition to seed interdisciplinary research on children and adolescents.  Research submissions should be consistent with the Schubert Center for Child Studies (SCCS) 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 that collaborates 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 Schubert Center will hold an information session on February 7, 3pm in Crawford Hall 13 for faculty members interested in applying.
