Augustana Grants Website


Deadline:  January 17, 2014

Submit Proposals to: Heidi Storl

In-country research grants for Africa, Asia, Europe or Latin America

To provide financial support to encourage research leading to peer reviewed publication by full-time, tenured or tenure track Augustana College faculty either during an academic term(s) or a summer period of study in Africa, Asia, Europe or Latin America.



Faculty Research in Peace Studies Grants

To support scholarly research by Augustana faculty in the field of Peace Studies, broadly construed. Although it is difficult to define the boundaries of Peace Studies precisely, as our Mission Statement suggests, it includes efforts to understand the social, political, and economic conditions that contribute to violent conflicts, to ending violent conflicts, and that favor or enhance the prevalence of peaceful (non-violent) and harmonious coexistence. A wide range of projects might fall within these general limits, and consequently, applicants in a wide range of academic fields are encouraged to apply. Research might include, but is not limited to: in-country research into the causes of a particular violent conflict, or into how a particular violent conflict has been resolved; in-country research into social or political practices of a particular community that have succeeded in encouraging non-violent and cooperative solutions to conflict; or scholarship based on comparative research aimed at general understanding of how certain sorts of conflicts can be successfully and peacefully resolved.



Present a public lecture on Freistat-funded research within one year after his/her funding ends to the campus community

Travel Awards to Present Research at International Conferences

To provide supplementary financial support to full-time, tenured and tenure track, Augustana faculty to enable them to present formal papers at international conferences in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Latin America.



Student-Faculty Fellows On-Site Undergraduate Research Grants

To provide funding to facilitate faculty mentoring of undergraduate research in Africa, Asia, Europe or Latin America, or in Peace Studies in either America or abroad.
