2017-18 Faculty Research Application
The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is pleased to announce an initiative to encourage student and faculty research in the areas of entrepreneurship and innovation, broadly defined to encompass multi-disciplinary perspectives. The initiative has two components—a faculty research grant program and a student research analyst program. The initiative builds on CMC’s tradition of the teacher-scholar model and creating opportunities for students and faculty to work together on applied research.

We welcome participation from the multiple disciplines represented at CMC, including government, psychology, science, history, economics, finance, accounting, public policy, humanities, and others. Research can range from such topics as individual- or firm-based studies (e.g., psychology of entrepreneurial behavior) to topics such as the impact of technological shocks to job growth and development. Research with a public policy focus is encouraged, as is research that connects entrepreneurship to the arts and humanities.

Faculty grants are awarded on a competitive basis. Due to limited funds, this grant is offered to full-time tenured or tenure-track professors only. Interested faculty members should submit a research prospectus that outlines the research question and relationship to entrepreneurship/innovation. Selection criteria include the importance of the topic, likelihood of successful publication, and expected quality of the student research experience.

Grant amount: $5000, made in two installments: $2500 upon award of the grant and $2500 after a final paper is submitted (within one year of the award). Faculty members who are awarded grants will be matched with student research analysts to aid in their work.

Applications for faculty research grants are due: September 22, 2017.
