The committee intends to support a range of projects across divisions. Applicants from all departments and divisions will be considered. Funds have a broad range of possibility and may be used for projects, collaborations, conversations, assemblies, and hosting visitors/collaborators/co-teachers; for student engagement in travel, research collaboration, and/or research assistance; and for projects concerned with local or domestic issues that have an international or global connection. Projects that include students as collaborators and participants are required.
