Funding Through the Clark Center

The Clark Center operates two funding programs each year.  
 

Small Grants Program

 
The Small Grants Program is open to all faculty and graduate students affiliated with UT-Austin.  Those affiliated with the College of Liberal Arts, in which the Center is located, may receive added consideration.  These funds must be used directly by faculty and graduate students to advance knowledge and understanding of Australian or New Zealand politics and society, culture and literature, economics and business. Grants are intended to facilitate research in Australia or New Zealand or facilitate research collaboration with academics based in Australia or New Zealand.  Research may focus exclusively on Australia or New Zealand, or it may treat either country in comparative context. Where appropriate, award recipients are responsible for complying with IRB rules.  Examples of competitive applications include those that propose projects that will enable a graduate student to fulfill a degree requirement or make progress on their dissertations as well as projects by faculty and/or graduate students that will result in publication of the research.

Applications should be received by 31 January 2015.  Applicants will be notified by email no later than 1 March 2015.

 

Visiting Scholar Grant Program

 
The Visiting Scholar Grant Program is open to faculty and graduate students from around the world who are affiliated with institutions of higher education and who seek to visit UT-Austin in order to use primary materials located on campus, such as those maintained by the Harry Ransom Center or the LBJ Presidential Library, or to work closely on a define research project with a faculty member at UT-Austin.  These funds must be used directly by faculty and graduate students to advance knowledge and understanding of Australian or New Zealand politics and society, culture and literature, economics and business. Grants are intended to facilitate research in Australia or New Zealand or facilitate research collaboration with academics based in Australia or New Zealand.  Research may focus exclusively on Australia or New Zealand, or it may treat either country in comparative context. Where appropriate, award recipients are responsible for complying with IRB rules.  Examples of competitive applications include those that propose projects that will enable a graduate student to fulfill degree requirements or make progress on their dissertations as well as projects by faculty and/or graduate students that will result in publication of the research. 
 
These funds are intended to support the expense of visiting UT-Austin.  These funds do not in and of themselves confer an official visitor status on their recipients.  Scholars will need to work with the relevant University departments, centers, etc. in order to obtain permission to use their resources.

Applications are accepted and processed on a rolling basis until the available funds are depleted.  Applicants can expect to receive decisions on their applications within four weeks of their submission.
