25 BYU faculty members receive 2008 David M. Kennedy Center research grants

Applications now being accepted for 2009 grants

Twenty-five Brigham Young University faculty members will benefit from a portion of the $83,285 awarded in 2008 by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.

The center’s annual research grant program is intended to promote and support scholarly research with an international focus. “We are pleased to continue to play a role in supporting quality, global-focused research by BYU faculty,” noted Jeff Ringer, director of the David M. Kennedy Center. “We look forward to the books, articles and other academic products this research will produce.”

Each year recipients represent a cross-section of disciplines, and this year is no exception, with faculty from humanities, social sciences, arts, business, music, nursing and life sciences receiving awards.

From fault zones in India to tsetse fly populations in Africa to Russian folk art to excessive thinness in Japan, the topics are diverse and offer a unique perspective on what BYU faculty are interested in. See the list of recipients and their proposals online at http://kennedy.byu.edu/research/facgrants.php.

Applications for 2009 research grants may be picked up in 237 Herald R. Clark Building. The deadline is Friday, Nov. 15, 2008. The grant program is open to all full-time BYU faculty members.
