Call for Proposals

The Center for Integrative Studies is pleased to announce the thirteenth annual “Magnus the Good” Awards. Open to projects from any discipline or combination of disciplines, Magnus the Good Awards are intended to encourage student and faculty collaboration. One or more awards of up to $3000 each will be granted, to support collaborative, student-faculty projects during the 2015-16 academic year.

The selection committee seeks to award projects that are built on actual collaborative work between students and faculty rather than student work supervised by a faculty member, or faculty work in which the student assists.

Work on projects may begin in summer or fall 2015, but must be completed by end of classes in May 2016.

Application : Students and faculty apply for a Magnus the Good Award as a team. Applications should include a description of the research or activity envisioned, a budget for the project specifying how an award of up to $3000 would be used, the projected outcome of the project, and a plan for public presentation of project outcomes.

Each proposal should include

  • the names of the proposers;
  • the title of the proposed project;
  • a description of the project itself;
  • a total budget for the project, including the place of the award in the proposed budget;
  • a statement from each collaborator about their interest in and expected contribution to the project and how the project fits into other interests and academic careers;
  • a statement of how the results of the project will be shared with the public.

Selection : The award will be made by a committee convened by the director of the Center for Integrative Studies.

Application Deadline : Please send notice of your intent to apply to cis@stolaf.edu. Completed proposals should be sent electronically to to carlsons@stolaf.edu by Friday, March 20, 2015.

Questions or Further Information : Dana Gross (grossd@stolaf.edu) or Susan Carlson (carlsons@stolaf.edu) or see Advice for Applicants.
