Call for Proposals – 2015 BETHA Grant Competition

All full-time Ohio State faculty from any college or discipline are invited to submit proposals for the annual Battelle Engineering, Technology and Human Affairs (BETHA) Endowment grant competition.

The Battelle Memorial Institute-Ohio State partnership fosters programs that examine the complex relationship between science and technology and broader social and cultural issues. Strong emphasis is placed on educational and public service projects rather than pure research. Interdisciplinary collaborations within the university and collaborations with other institutions are especially encouraged. Projects that address engineering-related topics or feature collaborations between engineering and the social sciences or arts/humanities are particularly welcomed.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Tuesday, November 25, 2014, at 5 p.m.
