  • Congratulations, Center for University Education Scholarship (CUES) Distinguished Fellow Dr. Mayer (Sociology)

    CUES Distinguished Fellow Dr. Mayer (Sociology) created the Tucson Poverty Project. In his current course, the Poverty in Tucson Field Workshop, UA undergrad students are trained both in the classroom and conduct field research on the living conditions of Tucson's poor and communicate these findings back to the city, county, and nonprofit community. With the Fellowship, Dr. Mayer is creating a new course called Building Stronger Communities that will build on the data collected in the Field Workshop and will work with teams of students to employ the process of human-centered design to develop solutions to the persistent problem of poverty in Tucson.

  • Congratulations, Center for University Education Scholarship (CUES) Distinguished Fellow Dr. Azaz (MENAS)

    CUES Distinguished Fellow Dr. Azaz (MENAS) is working on a project that develops a pedagogy model that integrates standards-based instruction and assessment to consolidate foreign language proficiency at the UA. The proposed project translates the foreign language proficiency standards into clear procedures in the language classroom. In addition, it uses evidence-based assessment tools to evaluate the standards and continuously update them. (Images: Azaz).

SBS's research support staff can help with all aspects of preparation and submission of grant proposals and fellowship applications (see below for specfics). We are already prepared to help with the external agencies that SBS faculty and students typically apply to (e.g., National Science Foundation, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Institutes of Health, Fulbrights for faculty and students). If you're interested in a funder whose funding mechanisms are new to us, give us some lead time to study the options. We can meet with individuals or groups, depending on your needs.

We can help SBS faculty, graduate students, and staff ...

  • find research funding
  • evaluate funding opportunities
  • strategize on proposal development, pre-review, and submission
  • navigate the UA's limited submission processes
  • connect to other UA-internal research support units
