LCA Extraordinary Ideas Grants

The Extraordinary Ideas Grants support innovative and creative cross-disciplinary research and activities that result from collaboration across programs, departments and colleges.

The Professional Development Committee especially encourages proposals that focus on promoting social/racial justice.

Proposals for up to $2,000 must be submitted by 11:59pm on Monday, October 24, 2022.

Eligibility: These grants are open to all LCA faculty and staff. Each grant proposal must have at least two sponsors. Each of the two sponsors must be from different disciplines/programs/departments in LCA. Collaboration can extend beyond the college with colleagues in other colleges so long as the two co-sponsors are from LCA.

Award Applications will be reviewed by the LCA’s Professional Development Committee and Interim Dean Sophie Clavier.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Associate Dean Gitanjali Shahani at
