Crossing Boundaries Research Award

The Transdisciplinary Studies Program and the Office of Research, Sponsored Programs & Grants invites doctoral students who have completed at least 16 units toward their doctoral degree and who are on track to submit and defend their dissertation proposal by June, 2023 to apply for the Crossing Boundaries Research Award. The award recognizes students who are using cross-disciplinary and applied research methodologies and perspectives in their scholarship in innovative, creative, and compelling ways.

This is a competitive fellowship award for promising, early-phase, scholarly projects that cross disciplines, institutions, and sectors. Awards will be given for individual projects/applicants, or, in the case of a collaborative project, up to two CGU students can share a single award.

Targeted applicants are doctoral students working—singularly or in a pair—on a research project in one of the following categories:

  • Collaborative scholarship across two different departments or fields. This work should involve one or more collaborators, consultants, or research mentors outside of one’s home academic department.
  • Collaborative, cross-sector scholarship with community, industry, non-profit or governmental partners. This work should involve one or more cross-sector collaborators, consultants, or research mentors from a non-academic setting.
  • Collaborative scholarship across two different institutions. This work should involve one or more collaborators, consultants, or research mentors outside of one’s home academic department and institution.

The application period begins on October 13, 2021, 12:00PM Pacific.

Application Submission Deadline: December 17, 2021, 5:00PM Pacific.
