Baruch College Collaborative Research Travel Grant Brazil Program Round 1
Deadline: Friday, May 2, 2014 by 5PM
The Program’s Purpose and Philosophy
The purpose of the Collaborative Research Travel Grants (CRTG) Brazil Program is to enhance, through global research collaborations with our partner Institutions in Brazil, the prestige and prominence of Baruch College to a national and international audience. Through direct contact, faculty can explore mutual interests and forge collaborative research agendas. CRTG will support all travel expenses for faculty members that are part of Baruch’s July 2014 delegation visiting our partner institutions in Brazil. This program is funded by the Vice Provost for Global Strategies, Dean Jeffrey Peck.
As part of our new strategic plan, the College encourages faculty members to address problems that will lead to new and future areas of global research strengths. As part of the “Make a Global Perspective Central to the Baruch Experience” goal, the College’s international and global initiatives seek to create long term research collaborations with our international partner institutions. The goal of CRTG is to establish research collaborations with our partner universities that could be nurtured and sustained. The Global Strategies budget would pay for 3 or 4 faculty members, preferably at least one from each school, to travel with the delegation to Brazil at the end of July 2014.
At the moment, Baruch College has meetings with the following universities:
- USP (University of Sao Paulo) http://www5.usp.br/en/
- PUC-Rio (Pontifical Catholic University of Rio) http://www.puc-rio.br/english/
If faculty members wish to collaborate with the below institutions additional meetings will be arranged:
- INSPER Business School http://www.insper.edu.br/en/
- FGV/EBAPE (Foundation Getulio Vargas/Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration) http://ebape.fgv.br/en
Proposal Development and Structure
- The program is open to research projects in all disciplines and tenure track or tenured faculty members at all 3 schools are eligible and encouraged to apply.
- The proposal must involve collaboration between Baruch faculty and a faculty member(s) at a Brazilian Partner Institution.
- The proposal needs to document that the Baruch Faculty member has made contact with appropriate Brazilian colleague(s) and there is an interest in exploring long term research collaboration.
- The proposal should outline a plan for activities to be conducted while in Brazil such as giving lectures, holding seminars, and or collaborative meetings.
- The proposal should demonstrate that the trip will not be a “one-off,” but the beginning of a continuing connection. A plan outlining post trip strategies for sustaining the collaboration over the long term should be included.
Proposals should be emailed in a single PDF file to: Melisa Mendez, Associate Director for Pre-Award Administration (firstname.lastname@example.org)
