Boise State’s Institute for Advancing American Values encourages conversation between multiple viewpoints to spur engagement, understanding, and human connection.
The Institute invites Boise State faculty to submit research proposals – ranging from public-facing scholarship to peer-reviewed research – focused on the values of freedom, opportunity, democracy, free expression and/or other enduring political, economic, and social values. In the best tradition of faculty research, projects will investigate multiple viewpoints, provide original insight, advance new knowledge or angles of analysis, and gather relevant data to answer a clear research question. By supporting such projects, the Institute will add energy to Boise State’s mission as a growing research university, an endeavor dedicated to academic freedom, and study of different ideas in service of knowledge and critical thought.
The submission deadline is March 1, 2022. The maximum award is $4,000 ($5,000 if engaging an undergraduate or graduate assistant).
