Emerita Professor and former Dean Joan Burstyn fostered collaborative projects between graduate students and faculty at the School and with alumni in the field of education. In keeping with this tradition and Professor Burstyn’s continuing work in the field, this award is available to support research and/or creative projects by SOE graduate students working collaboratively with faculty. The $2,500 award will specifically support the team’s proposal for the following:

This grant supports School of Education graduate student research and/or creative projects. This work does not have to be done in collaboration with a faculty member. Student awards will be $250-$1000, depending on the quality of the proposal and available funding. Each proposal will be reviewed independently by at least 2 SOE faculty members.
Proposal Preparation Guidelines
These grants are intended to provide support and resources for School of Education faculty members in the development and submission proposals for both internal and external funding. Tenure-track faculty members who will have up to three years credited towards tenure by May of that year are invited to apply. We expect that by providing SOE faculty members a sustained research development program over a several year period, as well as expanding the available incentives and supports for all SOE faculty members, that the number of submitted SOE external funding proposals will increase, as will the success rate for funded proposals.
Faculty members awarded SOE faculty research development grants will be expected to maintain active participation in the research development colloquia and/or one of the SOE research study groups throughout the two stages of the grant.The colloquia will consist of an intentional series of research-focused workshops, professional development activities, as well as individual and small-group opportunities throughout the fall and spring semesters. The primary purpose of the colloquia is to increase faculty awareness, knowledge, and skills requisite to developing successful external funding proposals.
Stage Two of this grant program will be expanded to all SOE faculty members in spring 2020.
Proposal Preparation Guidelines
Each application will be read and reviewed by at least two SOE faculty members serving as peer reviewers using these criteria:
Syracuse University also provides funding opportunities for faculty and students across the University.
