Generously supported through a partnership with the OSU Office of the Provost, the research cluster program offers scholars with expertise in different disciplines the opportunity to explore a topic of shared interest in common and in depth.
Meeting space, organizational assistance, and discretionary funding up to $1,000 are provided to groups awarded support. Participation in clusters is open to OSU faculty and instructors, scholars from other institutions, and advanced graduate students. A variety of aims and configurations are applicable, from works-in-progress or reading groups to teams with specific goals such as course or conference development. We encourage proposals that include creative interdisciplinary collaborations or offer inventive means of public engagement with issues of humanistic significance.
*NOTE: Due to renovations at the Autzen House, most of our programs are on hiatus. We are not accepting applications for research clusters at this time. Thank you for your patience, and stay tuned for updates.
