Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Faculty Seed Grants
Research, Innovation and Impact (RII) and the Office of the Provost are excited to announce the 2023 Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Faculty Seed Grant Program. The goal of the fund is to support scholarly research and creative work among faculty which enriches the UArizona’s designation as an Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), advances scholarship that directly impacts QT BIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) populations, and fulfills UArizona’s Purpose and Values.
Applications from single investigators for up to $15,000 are welcomed. Multidisciplinary applications from two or more eligible investigators representing different departments and disciplines may request up to $25,000.
The HSI Seed Grant Program is open to all faculty including tenure eligible / tenured, continuing-eligible / continuing status, and/or career track faculty across all disciplines and ranks. Early career scholars will be prioritized. Proposals will also prioritize existing partnerships or collaborations with other Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), including Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AANAPISIs). Proposals are reviewed on their commitment to advance scholarly research and creative work impacting QT BIPOC populations, and merit. The selection process is guided by a commitment to a shared governance faculty peer review process. The faculty review committee will be selected based on their own scholarship or creative work dedicated to racial justice.
