The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future at the Pardee School of Global Studies announces a call for proposals for Faculty Research Fellows to begin in Spring 2024. By awarding seed grants to Faculty Research Fellows within the Boston University community, the Center seeks to catalyze interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on future-oriented topics of global significance.

The Faculty Research Fellows program is open to all full-time faculty (tenure or non-tenure track) from any Boston University school or college. Proposals can be submitted by individuals or faculty teams. Appointments will be made for at least one year and no more than two years, with grants of up to $10,000 per year. A general budget plan and timeline should be included in proposals.

Types of projects may include original faculty-led research initiatives, major conferences, task forces or experts’ workshops, and structured seminar series. Examples of Pardee Center research projects led by Faculty Research Fellows can be found here.
