Small grants of up to $3000 are available to support Decision Sciences research at Ohio State. The goal of these competitive grants is to foster new Decision Sciences research activity and collaboration. Priority will be given to (a) projects that bring together Decision Sciences researchers from different departments or researchers who have not previously collaborated, (b) seed projects that are likely to generate pilot data or theory for external grant proposals, (c) projects that allow for the meaningful involvement of graduate and undergraduate students, and (d) projects by researchers who have not been previously funded under this program.
Examples of allowable research-related expenses include (but are not limited to) compensation of experimental or survey participants, monetary or other incentives in experiments, research materials or equipment, software, data sets, presentation expenses, conference registration, travel, and up to one month of summer support for graduate students. Faculty salary support is not allowed, nor are expenses that are incurred before the funding of the research proposal.
The maximum award amount is $3000. It is anticipated that projects will take one year or less.
