Carsey Public Policy Summer Scholars Program
A primary purpose of the proposed Carsey School of Public Policy is to support faculty scholarship that informs public policy or contributes to its design, implementation, and evaluation. To that end, the Carsey Institute, continuing its role as the primary locus of research within the new school, announces the first round of competition for the Summer Scholars Program. Up to five fellowships of $10,000 each will be provided to members of the UNH faculty in the summer of 2014 for the purpose of producing scholarly works in the form of peer-reviewed manuscripts, conference proceedings, exhibits and artistic productions, or submission of proposals for extramural funding.
The Carsey Summer Scholars Program will be structured as follows:
- All UNH tenure-track, research, clinical, and extension faculty holding the assistant professor rank or higher are eligible to apply. In 2014, preference for awards will be given to assistant and associate professors. However, faculty of all ranks are welcome.
- Fellowships of $10,000 will be provided in the form of a summer stipend. A Carsey Summer Scholar may choose to receive a smaller stipend and use the balance for RA support, travel, or related research expenses.
- Summer scholars will constitute a cohort that will meet occasionally during the summer months for peer discussion of emerging work products. These seminars will be facilitated by a senior fellow of the Carsey Institute.
- Scholarly products may be intended for a range
of peer-reviewed outputs (such as articles, chapters, and proposals).
- First drafts of scholarly products should be completed by September 1, 2014.
- By January 31, 2015, submissions for publication, presentation, or funding will be completed.
- All Carsey Summer Scholars will be asked to
write a policy brief, to be published by Carsey. Guidance and technical
assistance for brief writing will be provided by Carsey staff.
- The first draft of the policy brief should also be completed by January 31, 2015.
- A one-page report summarizing the achievements of the Carsey Summer Scholar should be submitted to the director of the Carsey Institute by March 15, 2015.
Eligible faculty should submit a three-page narrative proposal (not including references) to the director of the Carsey Institute, no later than February 10, 2014. A current CV and letter of support from the faculty member’s department chair/program director should accompany the narrative. Include a brief budget indicating the intended use of the stipend (see above).
For 2014, proposals are invited that address the following broadly defined areas—children, youth, and families; social, economic, and/or environmental sustainable community development (including social innovation in nonprofit and corporate sectors); and civic engagement, including participatory governance.
Proposals will be reviewed by a subcommittee of tenured and research faculty who are affiliated with the Carsey Institute. Consideration will be given to a proposal’s relevance to the fields listed above; the scholarly potential of the proposed product; the feasibility of completion by January 2015; and the qualifications and potential of the applicant, including how the work will enhance her or his academic career.
Questions may be directed to Deputy Director Curt Grimm at the Carsey Institute: Curt.Grimm@unh.edu.
Proposals should be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on February 10, 2014, to Administrative Assistant Susan Colucci: Susan.Colucci@unh.edu.
