The Office of the Provost offers a number of internal funding opportunities designed to launch new scholarship, research, and creativity at Dartmouth. Faculty members in all departments and each of the professional schools are encouraged to apply. Special funding is targeted for highly innovative projects that have the potential for transformational impact. These funds will enable faculty to pursue less conventional approaches and untested ideas that could challenge existing theories, create new models, shift current paradigms, or overcome major research barriers. Such "high risk, high reward" proposals in any category will receive special consideration.
Pilot Funds: Pilot funds encourage new directions of inquiry. They are intended to support the first steps in exploratory, speculative, and potentially high-impact projects. These might include developing innovative, emerging ideas; exploring cross-disciplinary collaborations; or collecting preliminary data.
Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Funds: Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences funds encourage faculty to broaden the scope of their scholarly, artistic, and creative endeavors. The funds are intended to enable innovative projects that advance one's field or one's own scholarly and artistic development. Eligible projects might include, but are not limited to: travel to archives or conferences; artistic productions or exhibitions; or preparation of manuscripts and articles.
Cross-disciplinary Collaboration Funds: Larger cross-disciplinary collaboration awards are available to support new initiatives that cross institutional and disciplinary boundaries to address complex societal questions and grand challenge problems. The aim is to enable faculty to compete for large-scale awards; initiate new fields of inquiry; or establish new capabilities at Dartmouth.
