WOW Flyer Feb2020- 11x17

The WOWTALK (What’s Our Work) Series brings together colleagues and students from disciplines associated with GW's Science and Engineering Hall—and related fields—to present new research and share ideas. These short talks (15 minutes each) are designed to introduce members of the GW community to current and exciting research projects undertaken in labs in the SEH, to initiate discussion, collaborate, share expertise, and to promote research performed in the SEH and at GW.

Dean Wahlbeck is happy to announce that the GW Confucius Institute has opened its application process for research proposals related to China. The research proposals are considered and selected by a peer-review committee composed of GW faculty members and, ultimately, by the CCAS Dean. Research results may be disseminated without limitation.

In the funding cycle 2019, the GW Confucius Institute funded 11 proposals for faculty in the humanities and social sciences, which has made the total number proposals funded 54 since 2014. This funding has successfully supported research trips to China, symposiums, database subscriptions, data collection, guest speakers, conference travel, and other scholarly activities.

 The following faculty are eligible:

  • Regular full-time faculty in the humanities and social science
  • Specialized full-time faculty in the humanities and social sciences who do not have substantial outside funding to support their activities

If you are interested in applying for 2020 calendar year funding, please refer to the GW CI Research Support Page for further details and instructions.

Proposal Due Date: Friday, February 14, 2020

Funding Announcement Date: February 28, 2020

Funding is available from March 1 to December 31, 2020.
