Eligibility: FRC projects must be led by researchers with Principal Investigator (PI) status appointed to a department or institute within NYU Arts & Science. PIs from Arts & Science are welcome, however, to include collaborators—including clinical faculty—from the larger NYU community including NYU Shanghai, NYU Abu Dhabi, global sites like NYU London and NYU Washington DC, and other NYU Schools and Colleges such as the Wagner Graduate School of Public Service or the School of Law.
Projects that are historical in focus—for example, that analyze historical data—are eligible as long as the researchers explain how the study objectives and/or potential findings will relate to or shed light on some aspect of contemporary China.
Research supported by the FRC must comply with relevant NYU policies including those regarding human subjects, animal research, etc.
Award: The total budgets for proposed projects can range from $5,000 to a maximum of $50,000 for a period of up to two years. Funding for a one-year budget is also acceptable. These awards are intended to support a variety of activities, including research, workshops/conferences, exhibits and other artistic or creative work, and the development of digital or print resources. Eligible expenses include data collection and/or archiving, research workshops, website development, travel, supplies, summer salary, and research personnel. Course buyouts, however, are not an eligible expenditure.
Deadline and Start Dates: The FRC proposals will be solicited once a year. The first deadline for submission will be March 15, 2024 for funding with a start date of September 1, 2024.
Outcomes and Deliverables: FRC awardees will be expected to present the results of their grants at a workshop or symposium organized by the Arts & Science Office of Research (ASOR). FRC awardees will also be required to submit an annual progress report and annual financial report. The progress report should include any plans and timelines for peer-reviewed publications, books or other scholarly products stemming from the FRC funding that may culminate after the funding period. Publications should acknowledge FRC support received from NYU Arts & Science.
Review Procedures: Proposals will be reviewed by an internal committee consisting of the Arts & Science Dean for Social Sciences and Vice Dean for Global and Strategic Initiatives, the A&S Director of Research, and two faculty reviewers. Funding decisions will be made within a month of the submission deadline.
