Battelle Engineering, Technology and Human Affairs (BETHA)

2024 Call for Proposals BETHA Grant Competition

Deadline: Friday, March 29, 2024 at 5 p.m.


The 2024 Battelle Engineering, Technology and Human Affairs (BETHA) Endowment invites full-time assistant, associate and full professors (with a minimum 75% appointment for a nine or 12-month period) to submit proposals.

Selection Criteria

Through this annual competition, the BETHA Endowment seeks innovative projects that examine the relationship between science and technology and its impact on broader social and cultural issues. Projects that address the following criteria are encouraged:

  • Projects that bring together expertise from two or more intellectually distinct disciplines or institutional partners, and those that envision collaborative opportunities for faculty, students and community members.
  • Projects that address engineering-related topics or feature collaborations between engineering and the social sciences or arts/humanities.

Note: Proposals that involve pure research or seek only to acquire or use technology (e.g., to purchase computers or other equipment) rather than explore its impact on broader social issues, are not generally competitive.

Award Amounts

Three to six projects are typically selected for awards ranging from $10,000 to $60,000.
