START Opens Call for Curriculum Development Grant Proposals

The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism emphasizes the importance of translating its investigators’ cutting-edge research on terrorism and responses to terrorism into increased education and training opportunities. As part of this effort, START is opening a competition for curriculum development grants. START will make six to eight curriculum development grants for Summer 2009.

The award will consist of a $3,000 stipend, to be paid in two lump sums, at the beginning and end of the development process. To be considered, you must be a past or present START investigator, fellow, or funded graduate research assistant. Graduate student applicants must have reached candidacy by the time of application.
