Faculty award applications due April 17

The University Center for Social and Urban Research (UCSUR) is seeking applicants for the third annual Steven D. Manners Faculty Development Awards. Two awards of up to $10,000 each relating to work in the social, behavioral and policy sciences will be given in honor of Manners, who worked at UCSUR for 26 years and was assistant director at the time of his death in September 2000.

Full-time faculty from all Pitt campuses are eligible. One award is a research development grant to support pilot research; the other is an infrastructure development award aimed at enhancing faculty capabilities to conduct interdisciplinary research. Preference will be given to junior faculty, faculty in the Arts and Sciences or provost-area professional schools, and faculty at the regional campuses.

Research development grants are intended to have the potential of leading to larger, externally funded projects. Infrastructure development awards enable faculty to develop, acquire and disseminate new research skills.

Applications are due April 17; awards will be made by June 19. For more information, contact Anna Aivaliotis at 412/624-5443 (e-mail:, or visit
