Through a generous gift of Martha and Jim Newkirk, The UCI Newkirk Center for Science and Society is now soliciting applications from UCI graduate students from all disciplines for graduate student fellowships.
We will be accepting fellowship applications in two categories:
1. Projects that engage the community with scientific knowledge and research. The most successful proposals will be those in which the community is engaged as a partner in, rather than a recipient of, scientific knowledge production.
2. Projects that analyze the production of scientific knowledge and/or technological artifacts and systems. The notions of “scientific knowledge” and “technological artifacts and systems” may be construed broadly (including medicine), and the analysis may be undertaken from any disciplinary perspective.
Awards are up to $8,000 and can be used for tuition, fees, and/or research support.
