Clayman Institute for Gender Research: Faculty Research Fellows 

Purpose: The Clayman Institute's Faculty Research Fellowship program fosters intellectual and social innovation through interdisciplinary gender studies for affiliated Stanford faculty. The Institute's current theme is "Beyond the Stalled Revolution: Reinvigorating Gender Equality in the Twenty-first Century." Our fellowship program brings together an intellectually diverse group of Stanford scholars to provide new insights into the barriers to women's advancement and to propose novel and workable solutions to advancing gender equality.

Stanford Faculty Research Fellows, along with Affiliated Faculty, will collaborate at bi-monthly luncheon discussions, which are scheduled during the academic year. At these luncheons, fellows report on their own gender-based research to an interdisciplinary audience of scholars.

They offer up to twelve Faculty Research Fellowships each academic year to Members of the Academic Council and Members of the Medical Center Line in the Stanford faculty, who are also Faculty Affiliates of the Clayman Institute.  They welcome fellowship applications from scholars in all disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, business, law, and medicine. Possible faculty fellow research topics of particular interest to the Clayman Institute include (but are not limited to):

  • The gender division of household labor
  • Families & women's careers: the 2nd shift, opting out, on-ramping, and flexible schedules
  • Representations of women in culture and history
  • Gender stereotyping & bias in the workplace
  • Gendered meanings and practices at work and home
  • Women's experiences in male-dominated fields, such as science and engineering
  • Gendered innovations in knowledge: bringing gender analysis into the practice of science
  • Gender and culture in history or literature
  • Advancing women's progress in the professions of business, medicine, and law
  • Historical and cross-national comparisons of women's educational and occupational progress
  • Effects of legal mandates (such a Title IX and FMLA) on women's careers
  • National policies, organizational polices, and work-family balance: what works?
  • Men's involvement in gender equality movements
  • Gender, leadership, and entrepreneurship

Eligibility:

·         Stanford Faculty who are members of the Academic Council and Members of the Medical Center Line who are also Faculty Affiliates* of the Clayman Institute.

·         All disciplines are eligible-- including the humanities, social sciences, science and engineering, business, law, and medicine

For faculty

Office of International Affairs (OIA): International Research Exploration Fund-Call for Proposals

Purpose: The Office of International Affairs International Research Exploration Fund is intended to help faculty develop new programs and initiatives that demonstrate "proof-of-concept" for further university or external funding. OIA seed grants have helped faculty address numerous early-stage research challenges, such as the unavailability of external funds to bring a collaborator to Stanford, especially from developing countries, the need to travel to the field to establish and accelerate partnerships with global collaborators, and the lack of funding to bring graduate students into the field to assist with and expand new research sites.

In short, these grants are intended to facilitate collaboration among faculty and students and to foster new relationships at Stanford and with research partners all over the world.

Eligibility:

•         Faculty who are members of the Academic Council or faculty from the Medical Center Line

•         Faculty members who have an active OIA grant in Academic Year 16-17 are not eligible

France-Stanford Center of Interdisciplinary Studies (FSCIS): 2018-2019 Collaborative Projects

Purpose: The France-Stanford Center for Interdisciplinary Studies aims to bridge the disciplines of the humanities, social sciences, sciences, engineering, business and law, addressing historical and contemporary issues of significance for France and the United States from a broad range of perspectives. Its programs bring faculty members, researchers and students from across Stanford's departments and schools into contact with colleagues in France, to explore issues of common intellectual concern, to advance collaborative research, and to foster interdisciplinary inquiry. The France-Stanford Center sponsors high quality collaborative research projects likely to foster new linkages and deepen existing connections between French scholars and students and their counterparts at Stanford University.

The France-Stanford Center seeks to fund research projects across all disciplines. Priority will be given to projects with the potential to develop new collaborations involving junior researchers, and to those leading to collaborative work on interdisciplinary issues. Applications must be submitted jointly by researchers affiliated with a French institution and researchers in any Stanford department, as long as they are eligible to serve as principal investigators.

Each project may receive a grant up to $15,000.

Eligibility:

•         Each application must be submitted jointly be researchers affiliated with a French institution and researchers in any Stanford department, as long as they are eligible to search as principle investigators

o   The phrase “French institution” is intended to be interpreted broadly, encompassing public and private universities, public technical universities, institutes of technologies and autonomous scientific higher education institutes, Grandes Ecoles, government agencies and organizations, and nongovernmental organizations.

o   Please note, moreover, that applicants based at a French institution and seeking to do research at Stanford need not possess French citizenship. Likewise, applicants based at Stanford and seeking to do research in France need not possess U.S. citizenship.

Intermountain-Stanford Collaboration Grants: Requests for Letters of Intent for Travel Award

 Purpose: The purpose of the Intermountain Healthcare-Stanford Collaboration Travel Grant Program is foster affiliation between Intermountain Healthcare and Stanford Medicine by providing travel support for investigators to further explore potential areas of collaboration and joint investigation with designated contacts at the other organization. The application process is meant to be as easy as possible to facilitate rapid collaboration between investigators at the two institutions.

Eligibility:

  • Potential Principal Investigators, either from Stanford Medicine** or Intermountain Healthcare, can submit a letter of intent for travel support to further explore collaborations, which may lead to a joint research proposal.
  • **Stanford School of Medicine with University-tenure line (UTL), Medical Center Line (MCL), Non-tenure line-Research (NTL-R), or Clinician Educators (CE) faculty appointments
  • Applicants who have received the travel award in the past may re-apply for support for additional travel, but should include in their application a justification for additional travel. It is expected that successful collaboration efforts resulting from the travel grants will be followed by application for funding from other sources, which may include an Intermountain Healthcare-Stanford Collaboration Grant Request for Proposals.
