The Family Research Scholars Program provides a course release and other support for up to six faculty to each produce and submit a major grant proposal for family research in collaboration with the Center. Family research is broadly defined as research on issues affecting families and thus encompasses all disciplines. Faculty from all ranks (assistant, associate, full professors) are encouraged to apply. For examples of Family Research Scholars' projects, go to "past scholars" link.
Family Research Scholars participate in a year-long interdisciplinary faculty seminar led through CRF. The seminar supports Scholars in conceptualizing, writing, and submitting their planned grant proposals through several methods:
- -ongoing presentations and discussions of the Scholars’ developing proposals;
- -concrete instruction on the details of successful proposal submission and the resources of the University that support proposal submission;
- -individualized consultation from a methodologist specializing in statistical analyses of complex multi-level datasets, and
- -intensive consultation from off-campus experts in the Scholars’ targeted areas of family research.
