Coca-Cola—Critical Difference for Women
Faculty Grants for Research on Women, Gender, and Gender Equity
Through the generous support of the Coca-Cola Foundation, the Critical Difference for Women Program at the Ohio State University will award four to five research grants this academic year. These grants are administered by the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies and the Coca-Cola-Critical Difference for Women Research Grants Award Committee, made up of nine faculty from at least five colleges. The number of grants depends on availability of funds, and grants may not exceed $4,000 for a 12-month period. Requests for smaller amounts will be highly competitive; in some cases, partial funding for a proposal may be possible.
Applicants must be full-time, regular (non-visiting) faculty at The Ohio State University. Only those who have not received a grant from the Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women Fund during the last five years are eligible for this competition.
- Significance of the research, for instance, its likely contribution to theory or knowledge [on issues related to women, gender equity, or gender and to the applicant’s discipline], to representation of women’s experiences or concerns, or to improved quality of life for women;
- Reasonableness of the proposed activities to the overall project; and
- Feasibility of the proposed activities (including qualifications of applicant, time line and budget). Proposals that focus on understudied issues or groups will be highly competitive as will proposals for amounts less than $4,000.
Deadline: All materials must be received no later than February 16, 2016.
Instructions, more information and application forms are available on the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies website.
