Sent: Friday, September 24, 2010 5:26 PM Subject: 4th Annual NiCHE Call for Projects The Network in Canadian History and Environment invites proposals to our 4th Annual Call for Papers. The NiCHE annual Calls for Projects have helped support a wide range of great projects over their first three years. They have provided funding for workshops such as “Bringing Subsistence out of the Shadows,” http://niche-canada.org/node/9007 online projects such as “The Don River Valley Historical Mapping Project,” <http://niche-canada.org/don-river-valley> or curriculum development such as “The People and the Bay.” <http://niche-canada.org/thebay> Sean Kheraj’s very successful “Nature’s Past” <http://niche-canada.org/naturespast> podcast series sprung from a Call. (See details of these and others on our Projects <http://niche-canada.org/research> and Events <http://niche-canada.org/meeting> pages) We are very pleased to announce the 4th annual NiCHE Call for Projects. We are accepting applications for one-time projects with needs between $2500 and $10,000. Examples may include a public speaker series, educational resource, workshop, or digital initiative. Your application should be sent as a single file attachment to email@example.com and consist of : - a proposal (max. 3 pages) consisting of a brief description of the project, followed by a full description listing the objectives, methodology, and timeline, with special emphasis on whether/how the project will promote public outreach of environmental history / historical geography; involve matching funds and/or partnerships with groups beyond Canadian universities; and/or facilitate student training and involvement - a budget (max. 1 page) for the entire project, including how the NiCHE funds will be used. (If you are proposing a digital initiative, that NiCHE would then host or link to, your budget may include funds to hire a web developer. Please see http://niche-canada.org/forms to find what digital services we can provide and support.) - a curriculum vitae (max. 1 page) of each individual applying. The deadline for submissions is 25 October 2010. Notification will be made by 8 November 2010. Successful applicants will be reimbursed for expenses on submission of receipts; all funds are to be spent by 31 December 2011. Because much of NiCHE’s funding comes via the SSHRC Strategic Knowledge Clusters program, which supports the mobilization and dissemination of research but not research itself, NiCHE maintains this distinction in deciding which projects it can support. Nous encourageons des demandes qui attendront un public francophone, et les demandes peuvent être soumises en français. NiCHE also considers requests for funding support throughout the year, particularly for projects that are time-sensitive. For more information, see http://niche-canada.org/funding .
