The University of Nebraska’s Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost invites applications for research projects and teaching initiatives that build on Central Asia/South Asia 2019 Summit.
The primary purpose of the Central Asia/South Asia Research Initiative is to strengthen the University of Nebraska’s research competitiveness and understanding of Central and South Asia by fully leveraging its multi-campus intellectual capacity and research resources. It is designed to facilitate new and strengthen existing research collaborations among faculty studying extramurally-fundable research question(s) about, with or in Central Asia or South Asia from a broad multidisciplinary “systems” approach. This initiative is focused on helping position faculty teams to be more competitive for the extramural funding required to further their research and to better understand the wide variety of complex systems found in nature and society in Central and South Asia.
The primary purpose of the Central Asia/South Asia Teaching Initiative is to strengthen the on-campus curriculum at University of Nebraska campuses regarding any country or region of Central and South Asia. It is designed to facilitate new and strengthen existing collaborations among faculty regarding instruction about any topic regarding Central or South Asia.
Assistant, Associate or Full Professors and equivalent-rank professors of practice employed by any University of Nebraska campus are eligible to submit funding applications. Additional information, including an RFA document, will be posted here soon.
