The Center for the Study of Equality and Human Rights at Eastern Michigan University is seeking proposals for participation in its Research Awards and Speaker Series Program. The Center mission is to promote, support, and disseminate research focused on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender equality and human rights. The Center is dedicated to the advancement of Equality by connecting academic, evidence based research to community action, public policy, and curricular innovation. The goal of the Research Awards program is to stimulate LGBT public policy oriented academic research in the Social Sciences, Communication and Media Arts, Human Services, Education, and Arts disciplines. Faculty members working at U.S. post-secondary institutions and doctoral students in these disciplines are eligible for and encouraged to submit proposals.
We are seeking proposals for original projects that can be completed in a one year time frame. A proposal accepted for award will be presented as part of the Center’s Speaker Series on campus at Eastern Michigan University. The Awardee will present the completed research between January and April of 2014. Research supported by the Center will also be published in the Center’s annual Equality Research Monograph. Research proposals should describe research not previously presented at conferences or published in a journal, transcript, or monograph. Papers that are being submitted to other conferences, workshops, or publications must indicate this on the title page, as must papers that contain significant overlap with previously published work. Accepted project authors will receive a $3,000 honorarium. 50% is awarded upon acceptance of the proposal. The other 50% is awarded upon presentation of the research in the Speaker Series and receipt of the manuscript by the Center for publication in its Equality Research Monograph.
