CSULB College of Liberal Arts:
Scholarly Intersections Grants, Spring 2014
The CLA Dean’s Office has allocated $5000 for a second round of Scholarly
Intersections grants for Spring 2014 to bring events of broad intellectual interest to the
CLA—ones designed to bring us together as a community of scholars. In this spirit,
events should be co-organized by faculty from at least two CLA departments and may
include collaborations with other campus entities, centers, and colleges.
Proposals will be evaluated according to their intellectual merit, coherence,
impact, evidence of interdisciplinary interest and interdepartmental support, and potential
for creating scholarly community across the CLA.
Proposals should include a brief project summary (400 words maximum), identify
target audience and sponsoring faculty, and show evidence of commitment from invited
speakers. Include a budget outline for maximum of $500 per project. Please note that
budget support for speakers will be limited to $300 for honoraria, though honoraria may
be supplemented from other sources and speaker travel can be budgeted in addition to the
honorarium amount. Projects with smaller budgets ($100-$300), for example to host
faculty book circles, themed workshops/mixers or brown bags are welcome. If the
requested budget constitutes partial funding for the event, other committed sources of
external support must be identified. Funds are not intended for faculty stipends, and
should be for event expenses, honoraria for visiting speakers, and travel funds for
