Scholarly Intersections F 2014 Awards


Call for Proposals:

CSULB College of Liberal Arts:

Scholarly Intersections Grants: Fall 2015

The CLA Dean’s Office is renewing the very successful Scholarly Intersections Grant program for 2015-16 with an annual budget of approximately $25,000. The goal of the program is to facilitate events and speakers that enhance the intellectual life of the College and provide opportunities for scholarly exchange across departments and disciplinary boundaries. Scholarly Intersections events, therefore, must be co-organized by faculty from at least two CLA departments and may include collaborations with faculty from other campus entities, centers, and colleges.

This year, we encourage proposals that highlight the significance of a Liberal Arts education outside the academy and in academic and professional pursuits not traditionally associated with the Liberal Arts. The possible scope and nature of such events is very wide, and could include, for example, alumni or other speakers/participants from the community or highlight interdisciplinary themes across colleges.

Proposals will be evaluated according to their intellectual merit, clarity and coherence, evidence of interdisciplinary interest and interdepartmental support, and potential for creating scholarly community within the college. Projects may include invited speakers, book circles, themed workshops/mixers, exhibits/screenings and discussions etc. Events may be planned for both Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 semesters. A second, smaller call for Spring is likely.

Proposals should include a brief project summary (700 words maximum) and a separate budget. The proposal should identify:

  • the intellectual focus and interest of the project
  • its interdisciplinary nature
  • target audience/participants
  • anticipated outcomes with respect to creating scholarly community and, if applicable, highlighting the significance of the liberal arts
  • names of sponsoring faculty
  • evidence of commitment from invited speakers and from other sources of funding where applicable
  • how a record will be created for use beyond the event and for documentation on the CLA website. This could include video or audio-recordings (of entire or partial events), written transcripts or summaries, interviews with invited speakers etc.

A separate budget must be attached, identifying budget categories for which Scholarly Intersections funding is requested and those to be funded by any other sources. The target maximum funding per request is $1000. Requests for smaller amounts are encouraged; requests for larger amounts may be made on an exceptional basis with clear justification. The following amounts should be used as guidelines for the maximum Scholarly Intersections portion of the following budget categories (additional spending may come from other sources): Honoraria: $500; Hospitality: $300; Airfare/Travel: $500; Advertising: $0. Higher amounts in these categories may be requested when providing clear justification.

Proposals should be sent to Carol Comfort ( and Misty Jaffe ( by midnight September 26, 2015.
