FUNDING OPPORTUNITY

The Arizona Institute for Resilience (AIR) seeks to fund an interdisciplinary team to develop and execute a creative and inspiring year-long agenda of events and activities focused on a single, resilience-related theme-of-the-year for 2023–2024.

We want researchers from highly diverse disciplines to learn from each other about how they approach the same general topic—what questions do they think about, what language do they use, and how might they work together to develop some compelling new projects and proposals? Proposals for the theme-of-the-year will include description of a variety of activities, such as research-focused seminars, workshops, or working groups; public talks that engage broad community audiences; educational field trips or other student experiences; and film, art, or literary approaches to investigation of and communication on this topic.

For more information on the resilience theme-of-the-year award, please go to https://arizona.infoready4.com/#research and scroll down to 2023-2024 AIR Annual Resilience Theme Grant”.

 

Due date: March 17, 2023

Award amount: One team will receive up to $100,000
