Research Cluster Proposals


The Center for Feminist Futures invites you to apply to Research Cluster Funding for 2024-2025, which aims to bring together faculty, staff, and graduate students with shared interests in interdisciplinary feminist, queer, and trans research. The groups will meet regularly during the academic year to collaborate on interdisciplinary research (e.g., present work in progress, read and discuss emergent and current scholarship, plan symposia,  and/or plan and implement joint research projects).

  • forming short or long term research collaboration supporting programming (symposium, talks, workshopping, etc.)
  • making work public 
  • strengthening community engaged work
  • integrating intergenerational dialogue
  • expanding international partnerships
  • creating institutional transformation
  • incubating new intellectual communities 

Budgets and allowable expenses. The maximum allowable request under this program is $5,000-$7,500 per group.
