For the practitioner-scholars among us … two opportunities for funding to support research were recently announced:
NASPA Region V 2012 Research Division Scholar Practitioner Grant
NASPA Region V enthusiastically invites proposals for the 2012 Research Division Scholar-Practitioner Research Grant.
Region V is interested in funding research efforts in student affairs that further a culture of research and evidence-based decision making in the region and are consistent with the mission of NASPA’s Research Division. We are seeking to support research that is: (a) systematic in its approach to discover relationships between variables or to explain a particular phenomenon, (b) grounded in theory, and (c) generalizeable or has broad implications for practice so that it contributes to the body of student affairs scholarship. Proposals that involve the analysis of existing data are welcome, but should meet the criteria above.
For additional information about the grant criteria and to apply online, please visit the NASPA Region V website. Please note that proposals are due May 1st.
For questions about the grant, please contact Jessica White, NASPA Region V Research Division Chair, at email@example.com.
