The Center for Integrative Studies is pleased to announce the eleventh 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, to support collaborative, student-faculty projects during the 2014-15 academic year, will be announced by March 12, 2014.
Awards for the 2013-14 academic year have been completed, see front page for this announcement. Watch for announcement in late fall for the 2014-15 academic year proposals. If you have questions about the award or process, email email@example.com.
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 2014, but must be completed by end of classes in May 2015.
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 of each applicant’s 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed proposals should be sent electronically to to email@example.com or brought to the CIS office in Tomson Hall 283 by Friday, February 28, 2014.
