The awards selection is based on potential contribution to scholarship, possibility of future funding, consistency with the goals of PARCC, and cost-effectiveness. Funds are used for such activities as data acquisition, survey design, the hosting of research conferences at Maxwell, and research assistance.
PARCC John Burdick Mini-Grant Award for Research on Social Movements and Social Change
Honoring the life and legacy of Professor John Burdick (1959-2020), this grant program supports faculty and graduate students conducting research projects on social movements and social change. This program will also consider projects that employ community-based research methods (e.g. ethnography, intensive fieldwork, action research) in partnership with social movement organizations. Researchers may use these awards for research activities such as but not limited to data acquisition, fieldwork, survey design, or research assistance. The selection committee will choose project proposals based on their consistency with program goals, potential contribution to scholarship and activism, possibility of future funding, and cost-effectiveness.
