Offices accepting proposals to fund research symposia

by the College of Education at Illinois  /   Mar 15, 2017

In celebration of the University of Illinois sesquicentennial, the Office of the Chancellor and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research are now accepting proposals to fund four to six research symposia that tackle big-picture topics with clear societal impact and that showcase the university’s research strengths. Topics should appeal to researchers in a number of disciplines, and proposed presentations should invite the exploration of new or innovative approaches to pressing societal issues. Target attendance should be limited to 50-100 internal and external participants.

Funding of up to $20,000 per symposium is available.

Funding for this program is made possible through the generous support of the David Dodds Henry Lectureship Fund.
