Great Cities Institute Faculty Scholar Competition
The Great Cities Institute Faculty Scholars Program brings UIC
faculty to the institute for a year in residence to begin, further,
or complete an engaged research project. Scholars are free from their
formal teaching responsibilities during their term. Prospective scholars
apply by submitting a proposal that is peer reviewed along three key
metrics of engaged research: interdisciplinarity, partnership, and impact.
GCI Faculty Scholars implement and further their own
research agendas, as well as develop grant proposals, participate in
the Great Cities Institute Lecture Series, and contribute to the Great
Cities Institute Working Paper Series. Applications are released in
the fall semester and due at the start of the spring semester.
