HFES Seed Grants Targeting the Intersections of HF/E and Anti-Racism/Anti-Bias

  • 1.  HFES Seed Grants Targeting the Intersections of HF/E and Anti-Racism/Anti-Bias

    Hi Everybody, please see the following message from Dr. Carolyn Sommerich.

    Dear Matthew,

     

    I hope you are well and that the semester is ending on a good note for you and your students.

     

    I am contacting you today because of your role on the HFES COTG. 

     

    HFES has initiated a new seed grant mechanism, and I want to make sure that all HFES members are made aware of the opportunity to apply for the grant.  I would very much appreciate it if you would distribute this information to the TG Chairs and ask them to share the information with their members:

     

    HFES is initiating a seed grant program in support of research and programming that investigates and addresses the intersections of Human Factors/Ergonomics and Anti-Racism/Anti-Bias. This grant program will stimulate and support projects and research intended to improve our understanding of and reduce/eliminate racism and bias in the systems, environments, products and tools with which humans interact. Seed grants fund the early stages of projects with the potential for broad impact or provide preliminary data for future state, federal, foundation or other grant proposal mechanisms. The long-term goal of this grant program is to identify evidence-based solutions to the problems of racism and bias.

     

    All HFES members are eligible to apply (new faculty and new practitioners will be given priority). Faculty/practitioner teams are strongly encouraged to apply. Grant limits are $5,000 USD each. Up to two grants will be awarded. 

     

    Proposals are due by May 15, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time.

    Thank you!

    Carolyn
